Life from Others

The story of the secret behind Spain’s world leadership in organ transplants. Human more than technical factors explain a medical revolution that has taken place over the last 25 years in Spain, started by pioneering Catalan doctors like Martí Manyalich, who now travels the world to teach others about how to create and sustain what is, for those involved, a moment charged with meaning and emotion — when grief of some can be transformed into hope for others.

Shot over a year in the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona, and in hospitals in Germany and Iran, this film reveals how the savoir faire of transplant doctors saves lives and creates networks of impassioned medical teams in unexpected places.
