Peace Film Series – First Screening – Friday, September 25 @ 5:30pm




Filmed in the war-zones of Liberia and Congo with unprecedented access to the field operations of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), LIVING IN EMERGENCY follows four volunteer doctors as they struggle to provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions. This film is an excellent opportunity to consider humanitarianism in the context of war and conflict.

View the Trailer for the film here.

Following the screening of the film, we will hold a short discussion session with UNC professor, Peter Redfield and Rotary Peace Fellow, Jean Lambert Chalachala.  Professor Redfield has conducted fieldwork both at MSF’s operational headquarters in Europe (especially sections in France, Belgium, Holland and Switzerland), and multiple project sites in Uganda. His research and fieldwork led to the publication of his book in 2013, Life in Crisis:  The Ethical Journey of Doctors Without Borders. Jean Lambert Chalachala has worked as an emergency doctor with MSF, touring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to lead responses to epidemic outbreaks.
