这里是VOA特别英语发展报道。

“紧急救护:无国界医生的故事”是由导演Mark Hopkins执导的纪录片,讲述了四名医生以及他们在利比亚和刚果民主共和国的志愿者工作。

这部获奖影片在2008年的威尼斯电影节首映。上月在美国开始放映。

医生无国界是一个人道主义组织,法文名字叫做Medecins Sans Frontieres。该组织主要处理由战争,传染病和自然灾害导致的紧急状况。

该组织表示,这是他们首次允许纪录片拍摄工作者无限制地进入他们的工作场所。Hopkin和其他工作人员拍摄了医生在一些极端和难以想象的危险情况下工作的情景。

这位导演表示,“紧急救护”是关于事实是怎样的,而不是你希望事情是怎样的故事。

来自美国的Tom Krueger医生于2003年到利比亚进行志愿者工作。当时的利比亚刚刚经过两场内战。

TOM KRUEGER:“我刚到那里的时候感到非常震惊。我的意思是,如果你想跟一些朋友谈论一下你看到的景象——你根本无法用语言来行动那里的气味,你身体的炎热和汗流浃背。刺鼻的脓的味道,未清洗的尸体充满了拥挤的房间。你知道,当时的景象加上自身的恐慌的味道,让你根本不知道自己应该做什么。”

该影片中另外一位医生,来自澳大利亚的Chris Brasheer在医生无国界工作了九年的时间。他曾经在刚果民主共和国工作,也曾到过利比亚。

他描述了他曾经面临的一些景象。

Chris Brasheer:“没有水,没有电,没有食物——真的是绝境。”

医生无国界组织在1971年由法国的医生和记者创立。今天,该组织为接近60个国家提供人道主义医疗救助。

该组织表示,平均每天有2.7万名医生,护士和其他人员与当地和外国救助人员一起工作。

来自意大利的Chiara Lepora也在影片中出现。她在该组织工作了几年时间。她告诉VOA的Penelope Poulou,今后她还会回来。

CHIARA LEPORA:“有许多医生愿意做一次志愿者,但是希望重复这段经历的医生却不多。”

医生无国界是国际性的运动,在19个国家设有组织,包括美国在内。其90%的资金来自私人捐赠。1999年,该组织获得了诺贝尔和平奖。

       

Film Captures Risky Work of Doctors Without Borders

 

This is the VOA Special English Development Report.

"Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders" is a documentary by movie director Mark Hopkins. It tells the story of four doctors and their volunteer work in Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The award-winning film was first shown at the two thousand eight Venice Film Festival. It opened in the United States last month.

Doctors Without Borders is a humanitarian organization also known by its French name, Medecins Sans Frontieres. It handles emergencies caused by war, infectious disease and natural disasters.

The group says this was the first time it gave a documentary crew unrestricted access to its field operations. Mr. Hopkins and his crew filmed the doctors working under some of the most extreme and dangerous conditions imaginable.

The director says "Living in Emergency" is a story about how things are, not how you wish things were.

Doctor Tom Krueger from the United States volunteered in Liberia in two thousand three, after two civil wars.

TOM KRUEGER: "It was pretty much of a shock when I got here. I mean, if you're going to talk to some of your friends about some of the stuff you saw -- and you can't describe the smells, the feeling of the heat on your body and the sweat running down your back. The smell of the pus that hits your nose, and of unwashed bodies in a closed room. You know, the circulation, and the smell of your own panic, you know, when you're not sure what to do."

Another doctor in the film, Australian Chris Brasheer, has been with Doctors Without Borders for nine years. He has served in the Democratic Republic of Congo and spent time in Liberia. He describes some of the conditions he faced.

Chris Brasheer: "No water, no electricity, no food -- pretty apocalyptic really."

Doctors Without Borders was established in nineteen seventy-one by doctors and journalists in France. Today, the group provides humanitarian medical aid in nearly sixty countries.

On an average day, it says, almost twenty-seven thousand doctors, nurses and others work in teams of local and foreign aid workers.

Doctor Chiara Lepora from Italy also appears in the film. She spent several years working with the group, and told VOA's Penelope Poulou that she will probably return.

CHIARA LEPORA: "There are a lot of doctors who are willing to volunteer once, but not many doctors who are willing to repeat their experience."

Doctors Without Borders is structured as an international movement. It has organizations in nineteen countries, including the United States. Ninety percent of its money comes fr om private sources. In nineteen ninety-nine the group received the Nobel Peace Prize.
