Heart Docs: Stories from Freiburg’s University Hospital

Documentary series by Reinhild Dettmer-Finke

2011/12, 5 x 30 Minutes for SWR, 3 x 30 Minutes for ARD

From October 2011 to March 2012, we accompanied patients and their doctors in the University Heart Center in Freiburg. Their stories are the focus of the five and three-part series „The Heart Docs – Stories from Freiburg University Hospital“. The result is a close observation of people in an existential situation: the body’s engine is threatening to fail. The stories are about diseases that go straight to the heart.
