From the shores of Africa to the Americas, the filmmakers travel with some of the 28,000 Cuban health professionals serving in 68 countries, and interviews international medical students in Cuba -- now numbering 30,000, including nearly 100 from the USA. Their stories plus testimony from experts around the world bring home the competing agendas that mark the battle for global health -- and the complex realities confronting the movement to make health care everyone's birth right."-- Publisher.

Dood in de Seine: Death in the Seine = les Morts de la Seine

Loading...
"From April, 1795 to September, 1801, three hundred and six bodies were taken from the River Seine in Paris where they were cared for by two mortuary attendants who methodically noted down the particulars of each corpse: its sex, age, hair color, bodily wounds and scars, clothing, if any, and the contents of their pockets. With information later provided by witnesses, it became possible to speculate upon the lives and manner of death of the decedents--a subject all the more intriguing since all of those taken from the Seine had witnessed the French Revolution. Peter Greenaway has used these images to construct a stark and visually shocking film."--Container.
