This is the VOA Special English Development Report.

"Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders" is a documentary by movie director Mark Hopkins. It tells the story of four doctors and their volunteer work in Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The award-winning film was first shown at the two thousand eight Venice Film Festival. It opened in the United States last month.

Doctors Without Borders is a humanitarian organization also known by its French name, Medecins Sans Frontieres. It handles emergencies caused by war, infectious disease and natural disasters.

The group says this was the first time it gave a documentary crew unrestricted access to its field operations. Mr. Hopkins and his crew filmed the doctors working under some of the most extreme and dangerous conditions imaginable.

The director says "Living in Emergency" is a story about how things are, not how you wish things were.

Doctor Tom Krueger from the United States volunteered in Liberia in two thousand three, after two civil wars.

TOM KRUEGER: "It was pretty much of a shock when I got here. I mean, if you're going to talk to some of your friends about some of the stuff you saw -- and you can't describe the smells, the feeling of the heat on your body and the sweat running down your back. The smell of the pus that hits your nose, and of unwashed bodies in a closed room. You know, the circulation, and the smell of your own panic, you know, when you're not sure what to do."

Another doctor in the film, Australian Chris Brasheer, has been with Doctors Without Borders for nine years. He has served in the Democratic Republic of Congo and spent time in Liberia. He describes some of the conditions he faced.

Chris Brasheer: "No water, no electricity, no food -- pretty apocalyptic really."

Doctors Without Borders was established in nineteen seventy-one by doctors and journalists in France. Today, the group provides humanitarian medical aid in nearly sixty countries.

On an average day, it says, almost twenty-seven thousand doctors, nurses and others work in teams of local and foreign aid workers.

Doctor Chiara Lepora from Italy also appears in the film. She spent several years working with the group, and told VOA's Penelope Poulou that she will probably return.

CHIARA LEPORA: "There are a lot of doctors who are willing to volunteer once, but not many doctors who are willing to repeat their experience."

Doctors Without Borders is structured as an international movement. It has organizations in nineteen countries, including the United States. Ninety percent of its money comes from private sources. In nineteen ninety-nine the group received the Nobel Peace Prize.

紧急救护:无国界医生的故事

疗剧很多,这个前段时间介绍他们时候说过了。很多情节段落都会重复出现,观众也已经看得厌倦了,即便是导演放出的催泪弹也很难奏效。如果过你真的想找回往日的感动或体会作为一名急诊医生的至高境界。那你可以看一下这部电影“Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders”,如果说医生时刻都在救死扶伤,那么电影中纪录的这群“无国界医生”,就是冒着生命的危险无私的救死扶伤。

导演Mark N. Hopkins深入非洲国家Liberia和Congo,追随Chris Brasher 、 Davinder Gill 、 Tom Krueger  、Chiara Lepora四位“Dorctors Without Borders”(医生无国界组织)成员,拍摄了这部令人赞叹不已的纪录片。在发生战乱的地区,卫生条件简陋,战火的骚扰,医生们要克服各种环境上带来的困难,由于“医生无国界组织”的生活与救助物资都由自己筹措,再加上战争中对运输带来的破坏,医生有时还要鼓起勇气进行一些特别的手术
