Open HeartOpen Heart
HBO Max Cancelled/Ended | Documentary

This is the story of eight Rwandan children who embark on a life-saving journey to receive open-heart surgery in Africa's only free, state-of-the-art cardiac hospital, the Salam Center in Sudan. The children have rheumatic heart disease, which often develops from untreated strep throat - a completely preventable condition if antibiotics like penicillin are available. Now, in order to save his young patients' lives, Dr. Emmanuel Rusingiza, Rwanda's lone public cardiologist, teams up with Dr. Gino Strada, the Salam Center's head surgeon. Strada must also fight for the tenuous financial future of the government-supported hospital, which means negotiating with Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir - a man wanted by the international criminal court for “crimes against humanity.” This heartfelt 40-minute Oscar® nominee (Short Subject Documentary) highlights the bravery of the children as they go under the knife in a foreign place without family to hold their hands, as well as that of their parents, who know too well that they might never see their child again but are giving them a precious chance for a healthy future.

The HitchhikerThe Hitchhiker
HBO Max, 1983 Cancelled/Ended | Drama, Mystery, Thriller, Sci-Fi
Rating: 4/5

A series of thriller stories, linked only by the character of The Hitchhiker, who would introduce and close each episode in the style of Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock. Occasionally stories involved supernatural forces, but most plot twists stemmed only from the dark side of the human spirit. The basic principle of the series is 'what goes around comes around', because when a character chooses the dark side, they often have no chance of salvation. There are no happy endings in the realm of The Hitchhiker.
