Q & A with Angela Snow and Dr. Luis Vásquez

Mortality of Dreams is a feature documentary that follows Dr. Luis Vasquez's dream to build the first environmentally sustainable hospital in Peru, a-state-of the-art, international volunteer-run hospital that will provide healthcare for all who need it. The catch? It will be 600 miles from Lima, in the middle of the jungle. Over 9 years, he struggles against rain, corrupt politics, and lack of funding in an attempt to leave his legacy. Completed after 10 years of filming in 2017, screenings began in 2018. Mortality of Dreams has had a great reception with its recent release.

The Yantalo Peru Foundation is devoted to delivering outstanding quality programs in the areas of health, education and culture to help meet the needs of the people of Yantalo in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle. Their goal is to create a long-term and sustainable positive impact through serious and active participation of the community and volunteers who share their vision and commitment to work with integrity, creativity and accountability.
