James Reid, Documentary Film Director will share 'Minutes to Die' his film on global snake poisoning. 125,000 lives are lost following the sudden, unfortunate interaction between farmers, children and homemakers and the venomous snake merely looking for water inside a thatched home or helping the farmer by devouring crop destroying rodents. Some 400,000 people each year will suffer their own form of long-term misery – perhaps an amputation or disfigured limb. Victims are shunned. Marriage for young girls becomes unlikely. Costs for treatment force families to sell of what little they own. Years or a lifetime of debt to pay for medicines, hospital costs or long term wound care exist in virtually every snakebite endemic country. Some have called snakebite an “additional penalty of poverty”. Fascinating story you wont want to miss.


he World Premiere of this Documentary took place in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
