Just One Drop – Australian Movie Premiere Hosted By The Aurum Project
About the Aurum Project
The Aurum Project, is a charity dedicated to advancing the understanding and practice of homeopathy in Australia by promoting and conducting research into the use of homeopathic medicines for childhood health and behavioural problems.
It was of great importance to us at the Aurum Project to host the Australian movie premiere of Just One Drop and get the ball rolling on setting up screenings across Australia to ensure this film can be seen.
About The Film
JUST ONE DROP - a documentary film about homeopathy.
Just One Drop tells the little known story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine ever invented. Homeopathy is a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. To many, homeopathy seems implausible. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet, homeopathy has been around for over 200 years and is used by millions worldwide. The film explores the controversy, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake.
We encourage media coverage of the film and the Aurum Project, so this page is a dedicated location for journalists and bloggers to find everything you need to create your articles and posts. Please contact email@example.com if you need any further material or information.

The Moving Artwork
At the Australian Premiere of Just One Drop, Australian Actor Zoe Naylor wore a statement outfit. It blew everybody away!
The moving artwork created by Sherree Maniks for Zoe, is a silhouette based on the ball gowns of the 19th Century, designed to take you on a fairy tale journey. For children, fairy tales can be a wondrous adventure of surprise and delight, an introduction to the duality of life on Earth such as right versus wrong – good versus bad.
In the garment, Sherree depicts the factory mind of pharmaceutical drugs in stark contrast to the individualised world of nature used by Homeopaths for over 200 years.
The outfit was constructed by materials donated by Reverse Garbage, an environment co-operative committed to promoting sustainability through the re-use of resources.
Sherree’s aim in designing this dress is to invite people to answer the following question:
“Is the health system you choose life enriching, transparent and focused on individual attention, or do you choose a system based on the one size fits all, hit and miss approach often fuelled by profit at any cost? Your health should be your choice.”
Sherree Maniks of BuTiFuL, weaves together a rich tapestry of creative skills with her desire for all beings to live a life of purposeful passion which she offers through art therapy sessions, workshops & online courses.
With her Costume Designer hat on, Sherree also creates original works of wearable art that are as unique as the person wearing them. Over her career her garments have exhibited in Art Express, Australian Gown of the Year Awards (finalist) and the Australian Wool Fashion Awards (1st Place Fantasy wear)
Her life motto and that which informs everything she creates and offers in service to the world is:
Know your Beauty. Speak your Truth. Live in Freedom. Open to Love
