Partners In Health on the big screen at Hot Docs

Published by admin on

In the 1980s, three young people barely out of their teens began a movement that would change global health forever.

Bending The Arc—a new documentary about Partners In Health that premiered this year at Sundance Film Festival—has been chosen to kick off the 2017-18 Docs Soup season at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema in Toronto.

Partners In Health’s Dr. Fernet Leandre, featured in the film, and Co-Director Pedro Kos will participate in an audience Q&A after the film.

Told through interviews, rare archival material and on-the-ground contemporary footage featuring Dr. Paul Farmer (co-founder of Partners In Health), Dr. Jim Yong Kim (President of the World Bank), and Dr. Agnes Binagwaho (former Health Minister of Rwanda), Bending the Arc is an inspiring story of the fight for health as a human right.

Three of PIH's founders: Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Jim Kim, Ophelia Dahl
