The Secret Surgeons of Cali, Colombia

This is probably the project I am proudest of. Myself and my producer traveled with a group of US surgeons deep into Cali, Colombia. We pretty much snuck into the country, and got shuttled to different hospitals. I was dressed a surgeon and had to walk my camera in everyday on a wheel chair, covered by surgical equipment. It’s all shot in secret.

I released the project through Filmsupply who has been licensing the footage and giving 100% of the proceeds back to Global Spine Outreach.

It’s a simple video, but outlines an important and pressing issue in places like Colombia.
