Can a remote, solar-powered hospital in a rural community provide a global model for health care? Since arriving in Honduras in 1797, the Garifuna people have struggled against exclusion, discrimination, and dispossession of their land. This is the story of how and why their first hospital provides free, holistic care without funding from the Honduran government. (2019. dirs. Beth Geglia and Jesse Freeston, 40 min. Spanish with English subtitles)
