    'If the musicians ain't got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?' Dr John. This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colourful characters, and set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans. In 2005 the music stopped, when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck. The flood defences failed flooding the Crescent City for weeks. Lives were lost and shattered. Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of some who made it back, told in their own words, with those who fought alongside to resuscitate the music scene; In particular the founders of The New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, a unique medical facility with the motto, 'Keeping the music alive'. —Renee Edwards

Children dying in Yemen

It's a decent documentary that could have been a lot better; it lasts 40 minutes and in that time it is very difficult to show many things; however, it is well done and shows us the sad reality of Yemen.

A man made disaster backed by the United States

As a Yemeni-American whos been fighting against the military industrial complex-since the war on my family's homeland began and one the U. S. army has supported and funded since 2015. Hunger Ward gave viewers a very real and very painful peek into what the silent war on Yemen looks like-the economic warfare which has starved millions of Yemenis. Bravo to the film team for putting their lives on the line to show us how complicit the U. S. has been and a special shout out to the heroic healthcare workers in Yemen, who continue to serve Yemenis with very little resources and international support. I hope the American public can contact their lawmakers, and urge them to stop supporting war crimes on Yemenis. YemenCantWait.

Excellent film documenting a very difficult topic

This movie documented the heroic work of two Yemeni women health professionals fighting severe malnutrition among children. The movie maintained the dignity of the children and the families. It balanced the realities of dealing with children dying of hunger with the emotional heartaches of those dealing with it, families and health care workers. The film was made under extremely difficult war circumstances in two parts of the Yemen contorted by different fighting groups. I know the roads the team had to drive through and the many checkpoints they had to pass. It is a miracle that this film is made. I highly recommend this movie.
