The Life Equation (2016)

Directed by Rob Tinworth, 98 mins


What if there were an algorithm for saving the most lives?

Crecencia Bush, an impoverished Mayan woman, is battling cancer. Her life depends on decisions made by doctors and donors, decisions increasingly driven by Big Data. It’s a scientific, evidence-based approach that cuts through the emotion and promises to optimise healthcare delivery, transforming the lives of hundreds of people around the world. But what, and who, gets lost in all the number crunching?

The Life Equation is a powerful new documentary about global health in an era of Big Data.
