Oli Otya? Life and Loss in rural Uganda is a feature documentary about people facing life threatening illnesses where access to medical care is limited. A team of local nurses provides symptom relief and support to patients in the villages. Every year a pair of palliative care doctors from the US accompany them. Through the lens of their experience, Oli Otya? explores how faith, culture and belief in traditional healers influence how patients understand their conditions and how they care for each other when options are few. The intimacy of medical care is a window into the lives of the people in Naggalama.
