Guongdong Province, China:
Poverty and Promise


A Scott Shaw Documentary

In 1991 Scott Shaw was asked to Direct this documentary. This was in no small part due to the fact that over the previous decade he had spent an enormous amount of time in the People's Republic of China and possessed a unique understanding of this culture.

This film follows Doctors and Nurses from the United States who travel to China, free of charge, to perform surgery on needy patients. This film also documents social, economic, and cultural condition of the region during this period of time.
