Why I do what I do

I know this isn't political at all, but I had to pass along this post from filmmaker Lisa Russell. Lisa is in Ethiopia filming a documentary about unsafe abortion in Africa. She is one of those remarkable people who can walk into a bar, a town center, a village, a hospital and stories just land in her lap. The most remarkable, painful stories. And somehow she manages to tell these stories in a way that is personal and unsentimental. (Her previous work has focused on HIV/AIDS and the delightful topics of obstetric and traumatic fistula.)

Check it out.

Rock on, Lisa.
