LIVING IN EMERGENCY
http://www.livinginemergency.com/

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 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.

The film is a raw and very real depiction of the dilemmas facing MSF staff in the field and the toll their work can take on them both personally and professionally. It is not a pretty film about MSF heroes and heroines. It is about the reality of aid work – blood and sweat, tough decisions and hard consequences, laughter and tears, cigarettes and beer, arguments and all.
