ABSTRACT
The article highlights the documentary film "Triage". According to the author, the documentary is predominantly about the intellectual response to the world, replete with genocide and starvation. He added that the documentary begins in Baidoa, Somalia where Dr. James Orbinski worked with Médecins sans Frontières in 1993 and continues in Rawanda, where 800,000 people have been murdered. Moreover , the story where Orbinski recounted the time he operated a young woman whose breasts and ears have been cut off is the most poignant moment in the film.
