FACING DARKNESS * (Limited Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Facing Darkness—
admirable documentary bolstered by well-placed interviews and professional camera technique—does a great job detailing the deadliness of Ebola as doctors and volunteers fight to stop its progress in West Africa. It’s a Christian documentary film that highlights the work of Billy and Franklin Graham’s charity, Samaritan’s Purse.
