Directed by Yvonne McKay and written and produced by Dave Gibson, Clare tells the true story of a woman who took on the New Zealand medical establishment. Clare screens Sunday 9 March at 9:30pm on TVNZ Showcase on TVNZ 6.

For fifteen years Clare Matheson (Robyn Malcolm) attended National Women’s Hospital in Auckland where she was unwittingly part of a study that would become known as ‘The Unfortunate Experiment’.
When she was eventually diagnosed by a private specialist as having cervical cancer she began a fight that would end in a nine-month public inquiry headed by Dame Sylvia Cartwright.

Based on Clare Matheson’s book, Fate Cries Enough, Clare is a powerful story of one woman’s fight for justice.
