Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders

The Nobel Prize–winning French organization Doctors Without Borders (Médecines Sans Frontières) sends doctors to some of the most impoverished and dangerous spots on earth to provide medical care to those who need it most.

Benefitting from unprecedented access to the organization, Living in Emergency provides a gripping account of the lives and work of doctors serving in the Congo and Liberia. Instead of the portrayal of heroic doctors that one might expect, Hopkins presents committed medical professionals coping with frustration, burnout, often inadequate supplies, and the constant presence of death. (94 mins., video)
