Hey Terry crew! Check out this screening of Living in Emergency, a film about the medical NGO, Médecins Sans Frontières. (Film Trailer)
I saw this film a few years back and I remember it being quite powerful. A good film for anyone interested in humanitarian aid, international conflict, and health. Even better, there will be a Q+A session following the film and all proceeds go to MSF. Details below.
For the first time ever, MSF gave a documentary crew uncensored access to its field operations. Set in war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and post-conflict Liberia, “Living in Emergency” interweaves the stories of four MSF field workers as they struggle to provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions.
