The Checklist Effect

Inspired by surgeon and author Atul Gawande’s award-winning book The Checklist Manifesto, this film explores the challenges of delivering safe surgery on a global scale - and how a seemingly-simple piece of paper can mean the difference between life an death.

 Follow the camera across eight countries, from snowy Moldova to the wide steppes of Mongolia, into communities, families, and the lives at stake. And go behind the scenes of one of science’s most sacred spaces: the operating room.

 Directed by Lauren Anders Brown (@LABCollaborate), with the support of Lifebox Foundation (@SaferSurgery).

Fifty dollars from each ticket goes to Lifebox as a tax-deductible donation. A receipt will be issued after the event.
