This short tells the story of Joseph Damien de Beuster (1840-89), the Belgian priest known as Father Damien, who worked for many years among the lepers on the Hawaiian island of Molokai.Written by

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is a look at the true story of a Belgian priest who went to tend to lepers in Hawaii and contracted the disease himself. At least one film has been made about Father Damien and it's a fascinating story. Thi short is good, if a bit melodramatic at times and the narration is sometimes a bit droning. Turner Classic Movies runs this between movies regularly and almost invariably runs it in March as part of their "31 Days of Oscar" feature. Worth watching.
