Saving Soweto documentary
Saving Soweto: New York Festival finalist
Saving Soweto, an eight-part documentary series on Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, has been nominated as a finalist in the 2010 New York Festival’s International Television and Film Awards.
The trauma unit in Bara hospital in Soweto is one of the busiest in the world. Al Jazeera joins staff for a grueling 24 hour shift on a pay day weekend – a time when staff and resources are pushed to their limits.
Saving Soweto was directed and produced by Shareen Anderson (Fort Greene Filmworks) and Lisa Henry (Left Hand Films) for Al Jazeera, who broadcast the series worldwide in 2009.
