The Most Distant Places (2010)

Produced and Directed by:Mike Seely

Dr. Edgar Rodas has dedicated his life to improving the health conditions for underprivileged communities in his native Ecuador, and Cinterandes is his visionary mobile hospital and rural health care project. The Most DistantPlaces follows Dr. Rodas and his team to the far reaches of Ecuador, interweaving intimate portrayals of the doctors with stories of the patients they treat. Traveling from indigenous areas in the Andes to fishing villages on the coast to Amazonian river communities, this film is a unique and hopeful look at the challenges of providing health care for impoverished people located far from adequate medical facilities.
