WOMEN FIGHTING HUNGER ON THE FRONTLINES OF A FORGOTTEN WAR
Filmed from inside two of the most active therapeutic feeding centers in Yemen, HUNGER WARD documents two female health care workers fighting to thwart the spread of starvation against the backdrop of a forgotten war. The film provides an unflinching portrait of Dr. Aida Alsadeeq and Nurse Mekkia Mahdi as they try to save the lives of hunger-stricken children within a population on the brink of famine.
"I believe that the most compelling films often emerge from a deep and abiding belief that - simply put - they must be done."
