GIVE ME SIGHT – Documentary Overview
Taking place in Myanmar, the Give Me Sight documentary follows three cataract-blind Burmese people as they make their way from their respective farms, villages and homes to the Tipitaka Eye Hospital. Once there, they have their cataracts removed, free of charge, by Dr. John Haines and his long-time friend and fellow ophthalmologist, Dr. Somsran Watanachote from Bangkok, Thailand.
This is a moving and inspirational story that gives an in-depth look at why the work of Dr. Haines and the Give Me Sight Foundation is so important to restoring quality of life and sense of self-worth to people around the world.
Give Me Sight has been met with critical acclaim, winning the Best Documentary Feature award from the Oregon International Film Awards and Honorable Mention from The International Independent Film Award.
