The background of the 27-minute documentary ‘Diaries from the Field’ is that of the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh. The film follows Nicholas Papachrysostomou leading the urgent intervention of Doctors Without Borders. Focusing on his personal thoughts, as he writes them down and narrates them through the ‘Diaries from the Field’, the documentary’s main character attempts to understand his personal choices that led him from the corporate world to the urgent humanitarian action of Doctors Without Borders. Through constant transformations, Nicholas always faces questions about his decisions, his motives and his role, as well as the true impact of modern-day humanitarian action.
