THROUGH YOUR HANDS
The medical field is injected with intellectualization. From the time one is accepted in a med school to the start of a specific practice, there are years of extenuate study, books, tests, conferences, residency, internships, overnight shifts to finally be on the stage at the other side of the hospital private entry doors. Behind that same door, in common areas, most of us sit and wait. Good news, bad news. It all comes from a laborious work at the end of the day.
I followed a thoracic surgeon along his hospital shift in a countryside town in Brazil.
"Through Your Hands" was born from this intense observation. Here, I aim to highlight the humanity of a symphonic work.
The place where mind and handwork meet to care for human condition.
