Absorbingly, unfussily captures Catena's daily challenges and feats while also painting a vivid, often heartbreaking portrait of a forgotten people trapped in an underreported sociopolitical nightmare.
The Heart of Nuba delivers a moving but thankfully not overly sentimental portrait of this admirable figure.
The film is worth seeing because it's a moving and remarkable story and it represents a great cause.
If Catena has flaws, filmmaker Kenneth Carlson declines to feature them, perhaps because they've been friends since their Brown University days thirty years ago. Still, the doctor has earned the adulation, and a visit to a leper colony shows why.
An inspiring and enlightening portrait of a Catholic doctor in Africa serving over a million people every year
The Heart of Nuba is remarkable, to me, for Carlson's ability to show how a Catholic layman lives his faith in a world of conflict with almost no humanitarian aid and is able to support his team's efforts to help the sick, wounded and dying.
A most down-to-earth saint presented in the most refreshingly candid manner.
The only surgeon for hundreds of miles, Tom Catena earns $350 a month but given his dedication to the poor people in Sudan's Nuba mountains, he should be nominated for sainthood.
Unlike many documentaries about endemic catastrophes in the Third World and the outsiders doing their best to help, this movie doesn't just have a hero. It has a villain.
A sober-minded, uplifting portrait of righteous doctor who heals the wounded and the sick in the middle of a Sudanese genocide
