OUT OF THE DARKNESS

Directed by Stefano Levi

SCREENING JUNE 4-11, 2017

Nepalese surgeon Dr. Sanduk Ruit, his American colleague Dr. Geoff Tabin, and their team of local assistants hike with an entire hospital on porter’s backs to the very remote highlands of Nepal’s Northeast. For 25 USD and 5 min per operation, they restore sight to cataract blinded people in the most remote and inaccessible areas on Earth. This simple and inexpensive surgical procedure is not only life changing for those affected by cataract, but also influences the economic structure of these remote communities which are dependent on the well being of the family.
