Frank Chilton


Using the power of documentary film Frank Chilton made a difference to the lives of disabled children in New Zealand and around the world. The films he directed for the National Film Unit won many awards and he was honoured by the Queen with an OBE for services to the handicapped.

I saw a great deal of misery and hardship suffered by children in a dozen different countries and the documentary film is one of the best ways of spreading the medical knowledge to help them. Frank Chilton, cited in the column 'As I Was Saying' by Max Whatman. Christchurch Star, 26 January 1970, page 4.
