Nearly everyone is familiar with the devastation caused by January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. CURE International’s hospital in the neighboring Dominican Republic was uniquely positioned to be able to immediately respond to the acute medical and surgical needs of those hit hardest by the earthquake. It was CURE’s first large-scale disaster response and proved to be a seminal moment for the organization.
Born for this Moment is a documentary film created by CURE that chronicles our response to the earthquake. Now, Born for this Moment has been named an official selection for the 2011 “Lights. Camera. Help.” film festival for nonprofit and cause-driven films. As an organization, CURE is deeply honored to have Born for this Moment included in the film festival. We are even more pleased that a wider audience will be able to see the hard work of Bryce Alan Flurie, our multimedia producer, who edited the film and shot much of the footage, as well as Dale Brantner, Gerry Straub, and Mitch Hood, who also contributed to the film.
