"SET MY HANDS TO HEAL" DOCUMENTARY - "DAR MIS MANOS PARA SANAR"

Inspired by stories about Ann Manganaro at Karen Catholic Worker House, Dr. Rodney Yarnal and his spouse Christen Parker went to El Salvador in 2007 to interview Ann’s friends and colleagues, and her family. Each one shared stories of her remarkable mission of accompaniment. 

They recorded over twenty-four hours of video. IFCLA joined Parker and Yarnal in the mission of transcription, translation and film production. Carson Minnow and colleagues from First Punch Productions edited the footage into the documentary, which premiered in June, 2013, the twentieth anniversary of Ann’s untimely death from cancer. 

Copies of the dvd are available through IFCLA. The minimum donation is $20. All donations are sent to Guarjila to build a retirement fund for Ann’s health promoters who worked outside the national social security system for twenty years.
