Three decades ago, a group of activists and doctors set out to bring healthcare to everyone in the world. Join Calgary International Film Festival and Hot Docs for the first film in this year’s Doc Soup Series.

Told through interviews, rare archival material, and on-the-ground contemporary footage, Bending the Arc is an emotionally charged, dramatic, and inspiring journey. Featuring Dr. Paul Farmer (legendary founder of Partners In Health), Dr. Jim Yong Kim (the maverick president of the World Bank), and Dr. Agnes Binagwaho (controversial Health Minister of Rwanda), it tells the story of their ongoing crusade and its effect on millions of people.

Bending the Arc screens at 7:00pm on November 1, 2017 at Cineplex Eau Claire (200 Barclay Parade SW).
