It Is Midnight, Doctor Richner

Directed by Fournet Thierry and Schmitt Patrick, 2002, 52min, French version

A portrait of Beat RICHNER, famous Swiss pediatrician and cellist, who decided in 1991 to leave everything in order to work in a hospital in Phnom Penh. He succeeded in launching “Kantha Bopha”, a pediatric hospital in Phnom Penh. After years of work, two other hospitals were created in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. His cello concerts enable him to collect money to support the hospital, with the addition of donations from all over the world. Thanks to this initiative, the lives of thousands of children have been saved.
