Screening of Bending The Arc, a documentary about Partners In Health

Event Details

In the 1980s, three young people barely out of their teens began a movement that would change global health forever. Bending The Arc—a new documentary about Partners In Health that premiered this year at Sundance Film Festival—has been chosen to kick off the 2017-18 Docs Soup season at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema in Toronto.

Partners In Health Canada is pleased to be able to offer a limited number of tickets at a discounted rate to the October 5th screening at 6:45 PM. A donation of $25, with all proceeds going to PIH Canada, will get you two tickets to see the film that executive producer Ben Affleck says “forces us to wrestle with an urgent imperative to create a new, just health care norm for everyone.”

Partners In Health’s Dr. Fernet Leandre, featured in the film, and Co-Director Pedro Kos will participate in an audience Q&A after the film.

Told through interviews, rare archival material and on-the-ground contemporary footage featuring Dr. Paul Farmer (co-founder of Partners In Health), Dr. Jim Yong Kim (President of the World Bank), and Dr. Agnes Binagwaho (former Health Minister of Rwanda), Bending the Arc is an inspiring story of the fight for health as a human right.

Individual tickets, to screenings on both October 5th and October 4th, are available through the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema.
