The Rebel Surgeon – Thursday @ 10.40pm
In Erik Gandini’s recent documentary “The Swedish Theory of Love” (2015) there is a character who stands out, the surgeon Erik Erichsen. This film is an intimate portrait of him and his wife Sennait. After serving 30 years in a Swedish hospital Dr Erichsen was fed up with all the bureaucracy and administration. He decided to move someplace where he could make a difference and do what he loves the most – to operate. In Ethiopia, where there are only 3 doctors on every 100,000 inhabitants. Dr Erichsen and his wife Sennait work at a small field hospital in Aira.
