DETAILS: Steve Gukas’s 93 Days is a taut medical thriller about the doctors who worked to contain the spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria during the 2014 outbreak. “While the film is coming out of the Nollywood tradition, I think it brings an international appeal because of the story that it tells,” Plauché says. The film, whose cast includes Danny Glover, is part of this year’s “Black Perspectives” series, featuring a range of African and American cinema. “In the end, it’s a positive story about the way in which doctors were willing to sacrifice themselves to ensure the virus didn’t spread.” Director/producer Steve Gukas and Glover will be in attendance at certain screenings.
