Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
From hapless donors who are tricked or coerced into giving up parts of their bodies to surgeons half a world away who turn a blind eye to illicit dealings, this program shines a powerful light on the underground human-organ market. It begins as a Nepalese youth is forced to sell one of his kidneys, then travels through India, South Africa, Brazil, and universities and medical centers throughout the world-following the insidious work of organ hunters and smugglers, as well as the efforts of journalists, researchers, cultural anthropologists, and law enforcement personnel who have taken aim at the trade. Although it gives ample discussion to the medical and criminal justice aspects of the problem, the film does not shy away from socioeconomic factors-namely, the lopsided flow of global wealth that allows such desperate, meagerly rewarded transactions to take place.
