Triage: Dr. Orbinski's Humanitarian Dilemma (Patrick Reed, 2007)

Triage follows Orbinski, a Toronto-based physician, professor and activist who accepted the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of Medicins Sans Frontiers/Doctors Without Borders.  In the film, he revisits Somalia, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and relives his experiences as a relief worker that continue to define his personal and professional self.  Walking through these sites of conflict stirs Orbinski to ruminate on the connection between the past and present, and the contradictions inherent to humanitarianism.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Patrick Reed.
