The acute man

The acute man is a film about hope and despair. It is the story of idealism and arrogance of power, a story of friendship across borders and religions. But above all it is the story of a person who refuses to give in, a doctor who has a goal to work for. The film takes us on a journey that ranges from scenic trout fishing in North Norway, through a hectic schedule at the University Hospital of Tromso to the bomb rain in Gaza in 2009. For nearly 40 years, Mads Gilbert has been fighting to save lives and create a better world. He is known worldwide as The Gaza Doctor and has been holding more than 100 lectures at universities in North America.
