About the film:
Shot in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, Affliction provides an intimate look at the impact of the Ebola outbreak on the lives of individuals. Starting in the remote village where the first victim was identified, the film takes us through the three affected countries, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. Through a series of interconnected scenes, we explore different aspects of the outbreak as village chiefs, patients, survivors, and national and international aid workers talk about fear and rejection, the stigma, the impact of quarantine, the mortality of health personnel, the failure of the international response, and the lack of adequate medical treatment.The film crew had unlimited access to the teams of Doctors Without Borders and was able to film some difficult moments normally hidden for the cameras. In the final scene we are taken on an emotional roller coaster and feel the complex reality facing those who have survived Ebola. Directed by Peter Casaer.
