Access to the Danger Zone (NC16)

Directed by: Peter Casaer, Eddie Gregoor

Year: 2012

Running Time: 70 minutes

Show Time:

10 Jun, 8.00pm (Sat)

11 Jun, 4.30pm (Sun)

In all armed conflicts, it is the civilians that suffer most – gunshot, bomb blasts, burns, rapes and other kinds of violence. With most infrastructure demolished, including clinics and hospitals, the sick and wounded have no access to any medical care. At the same time, conflict zones may sometimes put aid workers under threat as the target of the violence.

This documentary gives an insight into that dilemma, as it provides a harrowing look at the challenges of delivering humanitarian aid in armed conflicts. You will see how Médecins Sans Frontières works in Afghanistan, Somalia and Democratic Republic of Congo, where armed conflicts have been ongoing for years. Through interviews with patients and with the main humanitarian players, it also looks at the confusion of roles with military and political actors and the compromises taken to gain access to the war zones.

This regionally touring film festival invites the Singapore public to come closer to the medical action of Doctors Without Borders, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, through critically acclaimed documentary films. The three films will be followed by post-screening discussions to shed light on the reality of working in the field, the risks humanitarian workers face in the front line, and the efforts to preserve human dignity in times of crisis.

Affliction (PG)

Year: 2015

Running Time: 52 minutes

Show Times:

Shot in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the film provides a compelling view of the impact of the Ebola outbreak on the lives of individuals. From the remote village where the first victim was identified the film takes us through the three affected countries.

Through a series of interconnected scenes, we explore the different aspects of the outbreak as village chiefs, patients, survivors, national and international aid workers talk about the fear and rejection, the stigma, the impact of quarantine, the mortality of health personnel, the failure of the international response, the lack of adequate medical treatment.

The film crew had unlimited access to the teams of Médecins Sans Frontières and was therefore able to film some difficult moments normally hidden from the cameras.

In the final scene we are taken on an emotional rollercoaster and feel the complex reality facing those who have survived Ebola.



Living in Emergency

Living in Emergency (NC16)

Directed by: Mark N, Hopkins

Year: 2008

Running Time: 93 minutes

Show Time:

10 Jun, 2.00pm (Sat)

10 Jun, 4.30pm (Sat)

“Living in Emergency” is the 93-minute award-winning film that was shortlisted for the Best Documentary Oscar in the 82nd Academy Awards.

This movie follows four field doctors as they struggle to provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions in the warzones of Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is not a pretty film about Médecins Sans Frontières heroes or 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.
