Beyond Borders

This animated documentary follows the story of Dr Alan Pereira as he recounts his experience with Doctors Without Borders, dealing with the challenges healthcare workers face in territories with ongoing humanitarian crises. 


Beyond Borders, my debut short film, is an animated documentary based on an interview with Dr Alan Pereira, an Indian doctor presently working with Médecins Sans Frontieres. 

This film speaks to young adults and older audiences, urging a dialogue about socio-political conditions in war-torn societies. An armed conflict or a calamity presents many challenges to delivering medical relief. Yet, humanitarians reach out and assist victims of man-made and natural disasters despite prejudice, intolerance and violence.
