A documentary on Carlo Urbani

story of a Righteous' life

A documentary that, through the testimonies of his family and his collaborators, tells the story of Carlo Urbani, the Italian doctor who first identified SARS in Vietnam. 
Urbani was the only one who understood that man was facing a new disease: thus he raised the alarm to the government and the WHO, managing to convince them to adopt quarantine measures. Affected by the disease himself, he died after only two weeks, demanding that the tissues of his lungs would be used for research. According to the WHO, his anti-pandemic method still represents an international protocol to combat this type of disease.
