2011 Canadian Tour Dates

Screening of “Living in Emergency”


As part of the exhibit “Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City” Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders will be screening the powerful and unique documentary “Living in Emergency” in St.John’s, Halifax, Moncton and Québec.

Living in Emergency…goes beyond the adrenaline and drama to show what these far-flung doctors encounter daily—blood and pain and panic, certainly, but also their own doubts and wavering faith. What am I doing here? and Who am I actually saving? are some of the soul-searching questions that linger in the air…

—Anderson Tepper, Vanity Fair
