Life Changing Moments

Directed by Sherry Thomas | New York, NY USA
Screening: Saturday, October 12, 2013, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM | [Buy Tickets]

Synopsis: Life Changing Moments follows director and surgeon Dr. Sherry Thomas as she travels to Africa to provide free surgery and medical care to dozens of impoverished African women suffering with fistula. This inspiring documentary also contrasts the experience of providing health care in Africa with her medical practice in the USA.

Director's Statement: I was inspired to make this movie after making several trips to Africa on a medical mission to help women with fistula. I hope to help people understand the difference somebody, even at a grass roots level, can make in the lives of less fortunate women.
