Body Team 12

13 mins


Garmai Sumo is the only woman, and the effective leader, of Body Team 12, a group of medical professionals unafraid to handle the bodies of the victims of Ebola in Liberia. She and her team are doing work that must be done to save her country, she explains, and it’s important for a woman — a sister and mother — to be part of the crew, to help the men manage their fear. This urgent dispatch from the front lines of the epidemic, at its most terrifying in the autumn of 2014, depicts what appeared to be the start of an apocalypse, but the film could as easily be a bulletin from a dystopian future.
