abbott_fund_tanzania.jpg

Here's some beautiful new work from New York-based agenda:NY for the new Abbott Fund campaign. Directed by Ruben Latre, the work, produced by Hostage Films, was created to highlight the global work done through Abbott's international partnerships across the globe. Director Latre spent 10 days in Tanzania filming at the Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salam. Latre came onboard as director & DP for the campaign, which filmed in hospital environments and features the trials and tribulations faced by patients and doctors.

The video is backed by a voiceover which slowly intones Dylan Thomas' Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. Which a fitting testament to the plight faced by those highlighted in this video.
