Alethea has also produced a documentary UNSUNG HEROES which was launched at the COCKATOO ISLAND FILM FESTIVAL and held on Cockatoo Island in an old warehouse.
UNSUNG HEROES is a story about the unsung heroes that Alethea and Luca met on their journey in South Africa while they were photographing their African book. The documentary screening was a "sell out screening" and a huge success with an after party in the VIP house on top of the island overlooking Sydney harbour. With everything sponsored Alethea was able to donate all the profits for the night to CYNTHIA TOBIAS who is one of the unsung heroes in the documentary. Cynthia takes care of 28 children who live across the fence from her house in very small tin shanty houses. When Cynthia told Alethea that her husband passed away and that she was struggling to feed these children who rely on her, Alethea planned this event to help her.
Acclaimed Australian actor, Alex Dimitriatis launched the documentary and the Her Excellency the High Commissioner from Republic of South Africa Ms Koleka Mqulwana both spoke at the screening.
Then end result of this is Cynthia Tobias doesn't have to worry about food for her children for just over 8 years!
