About the director Kief Davidson

Oscar-nominated director Kief Davidson makes films that inspire and entertain. His film Open Heart was nominated for Best Documentary Short Subject of the 85th Academy Awards. With a small crew, the film followed eight children on a perilous journey to the heart of Rwanda and Sudan to get risky surgery at Africa’s only high-tech, free-of-charge heart surgery hospital. Kief is currently filming a companion film to Open Heart, about Dr. Paul Farmer and his organization Partners In Health, produced by Matt Damon in collaboration with the Sundance Institute, Skoll Foundation and Tribeca Gucci. Kief’s feature-length documentaries, Kassim the Dream and The Devil’s Miner, have won over 25 awards at international film festivals, including the coveted Fipresci prize at Toronto.
