“FIGHT FOR GOOD: One Body One Soul” is the second documentary produced by CHCB, Inc. and BPD about the COVID-19 pandemic. It follows “FIGHT FOR GOOD” which was screened at the Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State College, on Thurs., April 22, 2021. In “Fight for Good,” our CHCB executive and two physicians—all women of color—are captured in an unguarded style, revealing both their personal motivations and their higher goals.
“FIGHT FOR GOOD” has been selected for screening at three prestigious film festivals, namely, the 10th Annual Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, the 2021 Charlotte Film Festival, and the African Film Festival Atlanta: Virtual 2021
“FIGHT FOR GOOD: One Body One Soul” depicts CHCB leadership and providers going into the community in an ongoing effort to continue fighting the pandemic and provide healthcare for the most vulnerable residents residing in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Residents give candid testimonials of personal loss, sickness, recovery, and ultimately, overcoming vaccine hesitancy.
“’FIGHT FOR GOOD: One Body One Soul’ shows that we are all connected,” said Dr. LaVonne Ansari. ”Ultimately, what affects one, affects all. Nature does not give an advantage to where you live, rich over poor, or one person is better than another. ‘FIGHT FOR GOOD: One Body One Soul’ continues to capture our history of fighting for all that is good.”
