The Rebel Surgeon Erik Gandini

by Erik Gandini, 52 min, filmed in Ethiopia

 XXXII PFF Estonian People´s Award 2018

After serving 30 years in a Swedish hospital Dr. Erichsen was fed up with all the bureaucracy and administration. He decided to move someplace where he could make a difference and do what he loves the most, operate as a surgeon. In Ethiopia, where there are only 3 doctors on every 100,000 inhabitants, Dr. Erichsen and his wife Sennait work at a small field hospital in Aira. Resources are extremely limited so he is forced to operate using what is at hand, like a cheap power drill from the local supermarket, hose clamps, bikes, spokes and fishing line instead of suture thread.
