 At the 76th Venice International Film Festival, underway at the Lido di Venezia, in the Sconfini section, there will be a world premiere of “Beyond the Beach: The Hell and the Hope”, the documentary on the work of EMERGENCY, the directorial debut of British producer Graeme A. Scott and American cinematographer Buddy Squires.

 

 

 The passion of a group of doctors. Beyond the Beach - The Hell and the Hope explores the brutality of war through the voices of the EMERGENCY staff, a group of doctors, nurses, surgeons and logisticians who work to ensure medical care for the victims of war and poverty. The directors weave two stories, apparently distant and instead linked in an indissoluble way. On the one hand, they tell the phenomenon of migrations that cross the Mediterranean, highlighting the cycle of war from the war wounded in Kabul to the refugee camps in Iraq to the rescue boats off the Libyan coast. On the other hand, they bear witness to the daily commitment of doctors and nurses who have decided to play their part against indifference. In the film we see their tears and their smiles, but also the frustration;

 The plot of the movie. Beyond the Beach: The Hell and the Hope takes a look at the lives of doctors, nurses, and volunteers who have given up normal daily life to work in war zones with the Italian NGO EMERGENCY. Created in 1994 by war surgeon Gino Strada, EMERGENCY has treated over 10 million people worldwide. From the treatment of war wounds in Kabul to the slow routine of refugee camps in Iraq to the work on rescue boats off the Libyan coast, EMERGENCY staff members tell us how they can't stay at home with their hands, knowing that instead, it is possible to "do something" for these situations. We witness their laughter, their tears, and sometimes even the frustration of doing what very few people are brave enough to do.
