Guongdong Province, China Poverty and Promise

Guongdong Province
A Scott Shaw Documentary

In 1990 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 conditions of the region during this period of time.

Though the full version of this film is currently not available, you can view elements of this documentary on the Scott Shaw YouTube Channel at:
