The Documentary: Living Emergency
In war-torn Congo and post-conflict Liberia, four doctors struggle to provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions. Amid the chaos, each doctor must find their own way to face the challenges of the work, the tough choices, and the limits of their idealism.
Please Note: This documentary has graphic and explicit content.
Panel Discussion with Elizabeth Vargas
Following the documentary, Elizabeth Vargas, Emmy award-winning anchor for ABC News 20/20, will moderate a town hall discussion in an effort to go beyond the headlines of today’s humanitarian crises and explore the hard choices, dilemmas, and sometimes bitter realities that MSF medical teams grapple with every day in more than 60 countries around the world.
