Afghanistan: Collateral Damage

Italian documentary makers Fabrizio Lazzaretti and Alberto Vendemmiati (Jung (War): In the Land of the Mujaheddin) track members of the medical humanitarian group Emergency between October and December 2001, as they take a perilous car trip to reopen a hospital in Kabul. This 2003 video focuses on the efforts of doctors Kate Rowlands and Gino Strada as they treat both innocent victims of the American air strikes (many of whom are children) and captured members of the Taliban. Also on the program is Antonio Di Peppo and Guido Morozzi's Desert Rainbow: Emergency in Iraq (2003), which spotlights Emergency's efforts in heavily mined Iraqi Kurdistan, working with mine blast victims and amputees learning to use prosthetics. In Farsi, Italian, and Kurdish with subtitles. Total running time is 82 minutes.
