Part of the 2017 Milwaukee Film Festival, Bending the Arc, by directors Kief Davidson and Pedro Kos, focuses on three remarkable young people, barely out of their teens—Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer, Ophelia Dahl— who came together in a squatter settlement in Haiti. Determined to provide the same world-class level of medical care they would expect for their own families to the Haitians that soon became their friends, they faced obstacles so enormous they weren’t even considered surmountable by the rest of the world.
