What Lies Beneath the Words: the Sequel

What Lies Beneath… the Words is a short film produced by PeakCare in 2016. Inspired by the classic suspense thriller, What Lies Beneath starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford, this film delves into the scary things that often lie beneath the words that children and young people encounter, day in and day out, whilst living in care.

In 2019, PeakCare released What Lies Beneath the Words: the Sequel. Watch this video and you will be going behind closed doors to watch CREATE Young Consultants, Brooke, Ty and Miriel, plus Karen and Rachelle from the Queensland Child Safety Department plus Nadia and Lenny from the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak as they watch this frighteningly awesome film.
