Film Screening: Living in Emergency, Nov. 25 2015 @ PAWA 254

living in emergency

You are invited to watch yet another breathtaking multiple award winning film at our monthly screening on 25th November from 6pm – 9pm at PAWA 254.

Please reserve your tickets here: http://bit.ly/LIEtickets

The entry is FREE!

Feel free to also donate whatever amount to support your choice of cause.

SYNOPSIS:

Bosnia. Rwanda. Kosovo. Sierra Leone. Pakistan. Just a few of the world’s humanitarian and political crises in the past years. Whether the result of war or nature, these disasters devastate populations and cripple health systems. Despite the immense dangers and difficulties of the work, one organization, Doctors Without Borders, has continuously intervened at these front-lines of overwhelming human need.

Filmed in the war-zones of Liberia and Congo with unprecedented access to the field operations of Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) , Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders follows four volunteer doctors as they struggle to provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions.

Two volunteers are new recruits: a 26 year old Australian doctor stranded in a remote bush clinic and an American surgeon struggling to cope under the load of emergency cases in a shattered capital city.

Two others are experienced field hands: a dynamic Head of Mission, valiantly trying to keep morale high and tensions under control, and an exhausted veteran, who has seen too much horror and wants out.

Amidst the chaos, each volunteer must confront the severe challenges of the work, the tough choices, and the limits of their own idealism.

Hoping to see you and your bunch of friends.
