'The Last Mile'
19 May 2022 85s
This war of mine.
by Andrew MacGregor

War doesn't stop for Covid, putting both lives and supply chains at risk in places like Ukraine, Yemen, and Ethiopia. Keen to highlight the issues which often go unreported by countries that are 'over' the pandemic, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) depict a nurse with a limited supply of vaccines.

She tends to as many patients as possible, even as explosions rock her surgery and fighter jets roar overhead. Elsewhere, a courier navigates breakdowns and security checkpoints in a race to deliver more doses. The pressure is constant, but so is the desire to help civilians in dire straits.

The fact that the lead actress is a nurse in real life adds palpable authenticity to the work, whether she's dismayed at the empty fridge or delighted that supplies are inbound. Yet, as those precious vaccines appear in the distance, the film delivers one final gut punch.

It's a shocking moment which completes the film's ticking time bomb vibe. With the protagonist left in limbo, the advertised charity implore viewers to help conflict zones achieve what many developed countries took for granted.
