James’ silent disease is an 11 minute and 32 second documentary which aims to promote awareness about otitis media (OM) and associated hearing loss in children.

The video contains interviews with:

  • a mother whose child has permanent hearing damage as a result of OM (played by an actor)

  • a clinical leader from Hearing Australia.

James’ silent disease was produced by Metro Screen as a part of the Australian Government’s Care for kids’ ears campaign.
