Beyond the Call
Documentary
 
Edward Artis, Dr. Jim Laws, and Walt Rutterman look more like they should be heading to a golf course than running food and medical supplies into a war zone, but that is exactly what they spend most of their lives doing. Part-Indiana Jones, part-Mother Theresa, these three relatively affluent white men together make up the humanitarian aid organization Knightsbridge International. Unlike other aid organizations, Knightsbridge spends 100% of the money they raise on relief, none of the principles receive the customary percentage off the top and the three even pay for their own transportation in and out of some of the most dangerous places on earth. Without a staff, an office, or any other bureaucratic trappings, they hand deliver copious amounts of food, clothing, medical supplies, and whatever else people actually need to Afghanistan, Rwanda, Chechnya, and Cambodia, among other places. The organization was founded by Artis. All three are members of the Knights of the Order of Malta. Relying on detailed research, a network of foreign contacts, private donations, and their trusty fax machine, the three men are able to arrange and execute almost every aspect of their relief work. In this unique and inspiring documentary, filmmaker Adrian Belic follows these three unlikely heroes on various humanitarian adventures over the course of a three-year period. Rated No Rating .
