Tales from the Organ Trade

Réalisé par Ric Esther Bienstock
Canada / États-Unis, 2013 (documentaire, 82 minutes, couleurs, anglais)
Autre titre : « Schwarzmarkt Organhandel »

Description du film [en anglais] :
« Multi-award-winning director Ric Esther Bienstock takes a gritty and unflinching trip into the lucrative black market industry of organ traffickers, the desperately poor whose bodies are their only bank accounts and the desperately ill who face death without a transplant. A riveting human and legal drama unfolds starring a fugitive Turkish doctor dubbed Dr. Frankenstein, an Israeli physician who sees no evil in paying for human organs, a private clinic in Kosovo and a Canadian prosecutor who is trying to convict them. Unwittingly caught up in this high-stakes legal case in Europe is a Canadian man too old to qualify for a legal transplant at home and Anna, a beer-loving woman from Moldova who willingly sold him her kidney. Superb investigative documentary skills, narration by David Cronenberg and heartbreaking human stories of poverty and illness pose a modern ethical dilemma that only 50 years ago was the stuff of science fiction. »
