An Enlightening Story
2 June 2016 | by taelmancSee all my reviews

Okuyamba's message is conveyed by featuring real people in a number of challenging situations. Like any good documentary, it allows its message to be delivered through the words of real people in challenging situations. Viewers are transported to Uganda and then they face challenges experienced by those with life limiting illness. This experience is brought to life thanks to the production quality and shots of the group making way by traveling slowly along remote roads. Challenges in Africa's health care delivery systems are evident, and this film offers viewers hope that increasing awareness is driving the creation of additional and new options for the people of Uganda. The film also increases the awareness of supporting the expansion of programs in Africa designed to improve end of life care. This documentary film is powerful and worth viewing.
