A Thin Line

A Thin Line tells the story of two women that due to complications while giving birth almost died but survived, to shine a light on the problems with decent health care and access to it in many African countries. But the film does not tell a story focussing on the disaster, but instead is trying to show the impact access to health care can have not only for the woman herself, but also for her family and community through the powerful stories of Philo and Elisabeth.

Directed, filmed and edited by Yann Verbeke & Simon Sticker.
Produced for the World Health Organisation in partnership with Medical Aid Film.
Shot on location in Ghana.
