A PUBLIC SCREENING with Carl Gierstorfer

UCL, 22 November 2017, 6pm-8.30pm, Medical Sciences G46 H O Schild Pharmacology LT

UCL STS department is pleased to invite you to the public screening of We Want You to Live, Carl Gierstorfer’s 2015 Documentary on the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Liberia, in the presence of the director. After the screening, Carl Gierstorfer will answer questions.

In the event that this screening is sold out, please do not hesitate to come. There may be some free seats left.

WE WANT YOU TO LIVE – LIBERIA'S FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA is a documentary about the devastation the Ebola outbreak has brought upon Liberia. How do people experience an epidemic that was out of control for months, that destroyed the country’s health system and left fear and mistrust in cities and villages? The documentary tells the story of Stanley Juah, a father of four who brought Ebola to his village and who is now held accountable for the deaths of fourteen people. Stanley’s last hope rests with a Reverend who tries to seek forgiveness for him.

"This incredible film is a testament to the bravery, strength and resilience of those who helped to fight the Ebola outbreak in Liberia. International Medical Corps' response was made possible thanks to the support of donors, supporters and even journalists from around the world, yet 90% of those at the forefront of our efforts were not just Liberian, but from the same county where we set up the ETUs. These Liberians were saving the lives of their families, colleagues, friends and neighbors. This film tells their story and for that we are grateful to all of those involved".

Quote by Sean Casey, regional director for the West Africa Ebola Response for the International Medical Corps.
