Affliction (2015) w/ Ebola Survivor Corps

  • Affliction  Slider Image

Belgium | 70 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Peter Casaer

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa seen through the eyes of the local populations, village officials, aid workers, the sick and those who recovered. It is a story of fear and frustration, of stigma and disbelief, of grief but also of immense joy and courage.

"Affliction explores many different aspects of the outbreak: village chiefs, patients, survivors and aid workers talk about the fear and rejection, stigma, impact of quarantine, mortality, the failure of the international response, the lack of adequate medical treatment and the complex reality facing those who have survived Ebola. Given unlimited access to Doctors Without Borders, Affliction captures the story behind the headlines.” -Minneapolis St. Paul Film Society

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
