Fighting Chagas disease in Guatemala

Just got back from shooting in Guatemala. The subject matter was Chagas disease, which has a huge negative economic impact in Latin America, effecting 7-8 million people. Some have recently been calling it “the new HIV/AIDS of the Americas”.

This project was in association with the University of Loyola & University of Guatemala. We spent over almost a week filming in very remote locations (during which I had a fever as high as 103). We will be launching the web/video project sometime in May.
