For proof that hope and determination make a difference, pessimists and cynics need look no further than Bending the Arc.
It's a rousing, feel-good story about overcoming barriers, even when the challenges - poverty, lack of medical access - are inherently bleak.
The archival footage, the impassioned interviews, and the inspiring story of how warriors for solutions can overcome entrenched views on poverty and health, make for something genuinely stirring.
[Dr. Farmer's] quiet outrage over the widely-held assumption that it's futile to treat the global poor drives this story, which is finally as much about the triumph of a philosophy as of medicine.
For anyone who wants to believe in the promise of Martin Luther King Jr.'s quote "the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice," a film like "Bending the Arc" is downright inspiring.
A stunning documentary about a team of young people - Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl - whose charitable medical work 30 years ago in remote Haiti came to ignite a healthcare movement.
[A] story of social heroism, fierce spiritual triumph and driven scientific determination.
Beautifully shot and edited, the movie does justice to its subjects. Still, it has [a] promo-video quality, at times ... that detracts from its perfection.
In a world that gets more inter-connected every year, its lessons are too vital to ignore.
This is a film for anyone who cares about the poorest of the poor.
Although the treacly soundtrack overpunches on the sentiment at times, this is undeniably moving stuff - especially scenes where some of the doctors see footage of patients they helped save, still very much alive and thriving today.
There is always a crisis happening somewhere. Bending The Arc shows that it's possible to make the world better.
