Le Choléra Série-Collection : Les Grandes Maladies

Olivier Guiton
1993 - 52 min - Vidéo - Couleur - France

March 1993. A new cholera epidemic hits Bangladesh. Does it mark the beginning of an eighth pandemic ? This disease, frequently highlighed by the media, can be simply treated, and yet its propagation rate in developing countries is devastating.
A journey through the landscape of the "dirty hands" disease, with film shot at the cholera hospital at Dakka in Bangladesh and in nearby villages. From Asia to Latin America - where there was a recent outbreak - via Africa, retracing the path of the Vibrio microbe which for centuries has decimated populations in episodic attacks.
An exploration of a disease which plagues mankind, and which each society has tackled differently, focussing on the socio-economic mechanisms which suggest that cholera will be with us for some time to come.
