In a discussion about Ricardo Pollack's documentary, aid professionals and critics debate whether there are occasions when international humanitarian efforts might do more harm than good, and what is meant by emergency aid in the 21st century. From the Biafran War to the Ethiopian famine and the unparalleled co-operation between aid and politics in Afghanistan, the film explores the moral and political dilemmas that aid workers faced as their attempts to help were compromised or undermined.
