H.O.T Human Organ Traffic (15) + Panel Discussion

by Abi Weaver

Roberto Orazi | 2009 | Italy | 61min

Winner of the prestigious Premio Ilaria Alpi 2010

A shocking inquiry into the global human organ trade that lures vulnerable donors into illegal operations with false promises of jobs or money, then smuggles their organs via criminal networks to corrupt medial officials and clinics.

H.O.T. exposes the mediators, the organ hunters and smugglers, talks to surviving donors, and interviews the surgeons who claim they know nothing of the crimes they commit.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with leading transplant consultant Geoffrey Koffman and Director of Organ Donation and Transplantation, Sally Johnson, and chaired by Patrick Hazard, Director of the LIDF

Geoffrey Koffman is a consultant transplant surgeon of 25 years experience and Head of the Renal Transplant Units at Guys Hospital and Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital, London.
