Circle Of Defense: On The Frontlines Of Ebola And Polio


Set against the vibrant and colorful backdrop of developing West African countries, Circle of Defense (COD) is a short format documentary about the ongoing fight to eradicate polio and other preventable, life-threatening diseases and how that health infrastructure should be maintained to task shift to other infectious outbreaks, such as Ebola. Polio and Ebola-survivors in the film drive home this urgent need.
