Skye Fitzgerald, Acadamy Award Nominee for best documentary (short subject), talked to GWC director Haifa Alsakkaf about his latest film “Hunger Ward”. The movie deals with the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen caused by a civil war that started over five years ago.
“Hunger Ward” documents the extemly difficult situation inside two of the most active therapeutic feeding centers in Yemen and the struggle of two women health care workers in keeping children from dying of starvation. It is a hard film to watch but attention has to be drawn to the catastrophic situation and the tragedy and suffering of the people and children of Yemen.
La presidente di GWC, ch'è originaria dello Yemen, ha parlato con Skye della realizzazione del film e di come sensibilizzare sulla situazione in Yemen e le azioni necessarie per fermare la tragedia in corso.
