Tuesday 10/22, 3:30 PM (Session 18)

Director: Jordan Campbell
Producers: Jordan Campbell, Michael Herbener


This is a moving story about a bold, five-day mission to deliver eye care in a remote and wartorn region of South Sudan -- the world's newest country. It chronicles the miraculous work of Dr. Geoff Tabin and Dr. Alan Crandall; two eye surgeons committed to eradicating preventable blindness in Africa, and John Dau, one of the original Lost Boys of Sudan and a visionary for peace in South Sudan's precarious new independence.


Jordan Campbell has been chronicling his global adventures for more than 25 years through a blend of writing, photography and film production. His passion for international climbing and global stewardship has taken him on mountaineering expeditions to Peru, India, Tibet and medical missions to Nepal and South Sudan. Readers have seen Campbell's bylines in Outside, Climbing, Men's Journal, Aspen Peak and National Geographic Adventure. He has appeared in several documentary films including Light of The Himalaya (Rush Television) and Secrets of The Snow God (National Geographic Adventure Challenge). A film maker himself, Campbell has brought two documentaries to the film festival realm: Islenska (producer) and now DUK COUNTY (director), which recently won two awards at the film's world premiere at Telluride Mountainfilm (2013). Since 2006, Campbell has served as Director of Public Relations for Marmot, an internationally distributed brand of outdoor clothing and equipment. He's also one of seven Marmot Ambassador Athletes, exporting the brand's values of global social responsibility.
