In this touching short documentary, Harold Mintz recounts his decision to donate one of his kidneys to a complete stranger. It’s an intimate portrait of two strangers – as different from each other as they can be. We hear personal and candid details about one of the country’s first altruistic kidney donations and why one decided to risk surgery to help a complete stranger.
1 800 GIVE-US-YOUR-KIDNEY is the story of love, acceptance and generosity encourages us all to lend a hand – or kidney – to others, no matter how different from us they may be.
Samantha Smith – Director (USA)
“For me, this is a love story. It’s not a romance, but a real, true love story, As Thomas Merton once said: ‘Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.’ I hope Mintz’s story will communicate a message of love, acceptance, and generosity.”
