Burden of Genius makes its point...who is qualified to judge who gets to live or die?
Director Tjardus Greidanus' Burden of Genius extends beyond medicine; it taps into the human drive to do what has never been done before, to make history.
A fascinating film exploring a brilliant doctor's fearless drive...and the hardships he endured at the hands of his critics.
The incredible story of one man who tilted the scales monumentally in the healthcare battle.
Should be enjoyed by all lovers of great documentary filmmaking.
