Areas of Focus
Monday November 11th, 6pm France Atlanta will host a special Documentary Screening as a part of their 2019 Event Series: Triage: Dr Orbinski’s humanitarian dilemma which follows the powerful odyssey of James Orbinski, a humanitarian, Nobel Peace Prize-winning doctor, and former head of Doctors Without Borders, as he returns to Africa to ponder the meaning of his life’s work and the value of helping others. Drawing on a lifetime of experience deep in the trenches of genocide and famine, this extraordinary individual relives the triumphs and tragedies of relief work in Somalia, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The film will unsettle and move as it pointedly asks disturbing questions at the heart of the humanitarian dilemma. What can any one individual really do to bring peace to those who suffer? Where does humanitarianism end and raw politics begin? How does the sight of unspeakable evil affect the soul? Smartly directed by Patrick Reed, this remarkable film provides no definitive answers, but celebrates the best in the human spirit while staring unblinkingly at the worst.
Opening remarks and discussion will be led by Georgia Institute of Technology, Associate Professor of Economics, Shatakshee Dhongde.
Co-organized by The Georgia Tech Center For Health and Humanitarian Systems (CHHS) and the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, this screening will serve to link Health and Humanity through the France-Atlanta Humanitarian Forum taking place Nov 8th and the CHHS Health Systems- Next Generation Forum Nov 12th”
