Bending the Arc - screening and discussion - AberdeenMovie Schedule
18 November 13:00 - 15:00
This extraordinarily inspiring film, produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, documents a quest for social justice that sparked a global health revolution.
Committed to improving access to medicine in some of the poorest regions on the planet, a fledgling group of health advocates unexpectedly defeat tuberculosis in 1980s Haiti and Peru. Emboldened by their success, they take on the World Health Organisation’s neo-colonial policies; form an alliance with HIV/AIDS activists; ignite the spark that enables Rwanda to re-build its entire healthcare system, and help face down the threat of Ebola.
Their profound commitment to working not only for but with the populations they treat, training and empowering local health workers to effect real change within their communities, offers a stirring, emphatic rebuke to global inequality.
