Superhero courage in an Ordinary doctor
31 March 2017 | by dddavidsSee all my reviews

The raw documentary nature of this film highlights the fearlessness and patience of Dr. Catena and the staff at Mother of Mercy Hospital in Sudan. The film opens with pastoral scenes from the impoverished Nuba Mountains with overlays telling you there are a million people spread over this arid mountainous region. "Tom Catena is their only doctor." The rest of the story is a gripping depiction of heavy bombing against a minority with no defense and no protection but foxholes. The only relief until the end of the film is a brief sabbatical at Dr. Tom's home in upstate New York when he gets malaria. Everyone will leave this film asking, "Why didn't I hear about this sooner?"
