What are the consequences of obsessing over a dream in order to leave a legacy? And will anyone show up to see it? 81-year-old retired cardiologist Luis Vasquez dreams of a state of the art, volunteer-run hospital that will serve everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. The catch? It will be over 600 miles from Lima, in the middle of the jungle.
Filmed over 10 years, Mortality of Dreams follows Dr. Vasquez as he attempts to leave his legacy. Join the Biomedical Libraries and the Geisel Office for Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement for a screening of the film on January 21st at 5 PM in Chilcott Auditorium. The screening will be followed by Q&A with director Angela Snow.
