In the Hearts of Africa
After the outstanding success of the 2007 documentary film Life for a Child, Academy Award-nominated director Edward Lachman teamed up once again with Eli Lilly and Company and the International Diabetes Federation to produce a heart-rending film about children with diabetes, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Lifeblood features Congolese children with type 1 diabetes and follows their day-to-day lives as they struggle to survive in their impoverished capital city of Kinshasa.
This new documentary film, part of the IDF Life for a Child film series, aims to raise awareness of the devastating impact of diabetes in the developing world and increase support for the IDF Life for a Child Programme.
