In the Shadow of Ebola [electronic resource]: A Liberian Family's Story

In The Shadow of Ebola is an intimate story of a family and a nation torn apart by the Ebola outbreak. The film follows a Liberian student and his family living divided between the United States and Monrovia, who open our eyes to the ripple effects the outbreak is having on Liberians living through this crisis-including famine and threatened social unrest. Caught in an invisible war that is painfully reminiscent of the chaos and confusion they lived through during a fourteen-year civil war, a family and a people find the compassion and inner resolve to combat the virus's spread.
