English Surgeon

Contest: Win Tickets to The English Surgeon at Hot Docs

The Hot Docs 2008 film festival is fast approaching and runs in Toronto from April 17th to 27th. All through this week, blogTO will be running contests and lucky blogTO readers will be winning tickets to a number of great documentary film screenings. Watch for contests to appear on the site at around 2pm daily all week, and best of luck!

Our first contest is for two pairs of tickets to April 21st screening of The English Surgeon, an intimate portrait of a brain surgeon working in an ill-equipped Ukrainian hospital and dealing with the moral and ethical issues that often exist between doctor and patient relationships. Directed by Geoffrey Smith, the film candidly addresses issues that affect us all.
