Running 70 minutes, "Access to the Danger Zone" explores the strategies that Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) uses to save lives in the world’s worst war zones, including Afghanistan, Somalia and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Interviews with key experts from MSF, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations are accompanied by dramatic footage shot in the these countries in 2011 and 2012. The screening will be followed by a Q. & A. session with two Seattle-area doctors who have worked internationally with Doctors Without Borders.
