Bright Lights - The Perils of the Pokies

A 25 year addiction to poker machine gambling has a cost. Sharon lost almost everything... and very nearly her life. This short, fully animated documentary, voiced by Claudia Karvan, not only asks people to pause and re-think their next spin, but asks a broader question of those regulating the industry; How many suicides will it take to see genuine poker machine reform?
