Event description

Description

Affliction depicts the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa seen through the eyes of local populations, village officials, aid workers, the sick and those who recovered.

Filmed in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the story starts in the remote village of Meliandou where the first victim was identified. We are then taken to all three affected countries, providing a compelling view of the impact Ebola had on the lives of individuals. Afflication explores many different aspects of the outbreak. The individuals involved talk of the fear and rejection, stigma, impact of quarantine, mortality, the failure of the international response, the lack of adequate medical treatment and the complex reality facing those who have survived Ebola.

The film crew were given unlimited access to Doctors Without Borders (MSF) facilities and captured unique footage.

Film showing with a talk from Guest Speaker Ian Callacot.

In collaboration with Aberdeen University Immunology Society.
