A Free Screeining of the Documentary The Danger Zone in Albuquerque and Santa Fe

Delivering medical assistance and other types of aid in a war zone is an extremely difficult task.  The documentary The Danger Zone illustrates the difficulties that personnel from Doctors without Borders, the International Committee of the Red Cross (Red Crescent), and the United Nations face in attempting to save lives in areas of conflict. The documentary offers interviews with experts from the three organizations along with dramatic footage shot in Afghanistan, Somalia, and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The documentary, which is narrated by Daniel Day-Lewis, will be shown in Albuquerque and Santa Fe next week, and I urge you to consider attending one of the two screenings sponsored by Doctors without Borders. Each screening will be followed bya Q&A with local Doctors Without Borders aid workers, who will share stories from their overseas assignments.  Doctors without Borders recommends that you register for the showing that you want to attend.
