“The Chain” – Documentary on Organ Donation

Hi Everyone, today I would like to share with you a Documentary.

The Chain is an innovative, digital short‐form documentary that uses five interwoven story lines to provide a compelling portrait of organ donation in the United States.

Currently, there are over 80,000 people awaiting a kidney transplant in the U.S. Recipients can expect to wait a national average of eight years for a transplant, and spend years undergoing taxing and time‐consuming dialysis in the meantime.

The Chain will illustrate the network of shared good that embodies the work of The National Kidney Registry. Over the course of five episodes, we follow donors and recipients within a single chain as they pass through stages of the transplant process, encountering the myriad risks and rewards it entails.

Here are the five links:
