As a curtain raiser to the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2013, QHA will screen a short film by Cecilia Stenbom.
In The Rescue Stenbom has taken interview extracts from "Rescue 911", an American docu-drama of the 1990s about real life rescues, and remade them with her playing all the interviewees: the 911 dispatcher, the police officer, the paramedic, the fireman, the doctor and the nurse.
