Bending the Arc is a powerful documentary about the extraordinary team of doctors and activists - including Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Ophelia Dahl - whose work thirty

years ago to save lives in a rural Haitian village grew into a global battle in the halls of power for the right to health for all. Epic, yet intimate, the film is a compelling argument for the power of collective and personal vision and will to turn the tide of history.

 

Dr. Agnes Binagwaho is a Rwandan pediatrician who served as the Minister of Health of Rwanda for 5 years.. Dr. Binagwaho is currently a Senior Lecturer

in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the Geisel School of Medicine at
