Billed by The New York Times as "enthralling, astonishing … agonizingly human," The English Surgeon is producer/director Geoffrey Smith's unforgettable, award-winning story of Dr. Henry Marsh, a prominent British brain surgeon who for 15 years has been traveling to Ukraine to help his colleague Dr. Igor Kurilets save the lives of people who otherwise would have had little or no chance of survival. Shot in a hospital full of desperate patients and makeshift equipment, the film offers an intimate portrait of the doctor-patient relationship; of humanity, frustration, and failure; and of hope and perseverance against all odds.
