Thirty years ago, while much of the world was being ravaged by horrific diseases such as AIDS and tuberculosis, three remarkable young people, barely out of their teens—Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl—came together in a squatted settlement in Haiti. Determined to provide a world-class level of medical care—the kind they would expect for their own families—to the Haitians who would soon become their friends, they faced obstacles so enormous they weren’t even considered surmountable by the rest of the world. Bending the Arc is a powerful documentary about this extraordinary team of doctors and activists whose work 30 years ago grew into a global battle in the halls of power for the right to health for all. Epic, yet intimate, the film reaches far beyond the issue of healthcare with a grander narrative about how the evolution of humanity takes place: how moral imagination, strategy, and sheer will can together change the trajectory of the world, bending the arc of the universe forever.
