Product Description:

Though famed doctor Albert Schweitzer was seen by many as an incredible humanitarian, his wife, Helen, saw him simply as human. This docudrama is told from her perspective, revealing the hardships she and her daughter endured in Europe while their husband and father was away in Africa. In addition to creating an intensely personal picture of Dr. Schweitzer, this biographical film also celebrates his work through interviews with family members and experts.

Product Description:

Dr. Albert Schweitzer is remembered around the world as one of the great humanitarians of the 20th century, a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in healing the sick and injured in Africa. This towering figure - jungle doctor, pastor, philosopher, and celebrated musician - was revered by royalty and the famous of his day. Yet the price of his fame was paid for in part by his wife and daughter, left behind in Europe while he pursued his African dream.
Albert Schweitzer: Called to Africa tells his remarkable story through the eyes of his wife, Helene, a nurse who shared her husband's dream of carving a hospital out of the rugged African jungle. Filmed on location in Strasbourg, France, where the young Schweitzer gave organ recitals and preached, and in Gabon, West Africa, where the hospital he founded continues to treat people today, this inspiring docu-drama brings to life the story of Albert Schweitzer, and is enhanced by real-life interviews with family members, biographers, theologians, and others.
