Since Manu Contact has dedicated a post to Dr. Albert Schweitzer, who is one of my heroes, let me share with you a unique documentary on his life, which was almost lost after its only public viewing. It is 80 minutes long, so make sure you have enough time for it. It is really worth watching it.
In this long lost ACADEMY AWARD winning documentary covering the life and times of the legendary humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winner, the camera follows the good doctor around his hospital in French Equatorial Africa, where his efforts had helped the villagers build and improve their way of life.
This amazing documentary features narration by legendary actors Burgess Meredith and Fredric March with incredible on-location footage of Albert Schweitzer at his hospital in Africa.
Best Documentary — 1957
A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives. -Albert Schweitzer
