Summary Filming in the jungle of Peru for 10 years. For 10 years, "Mortality of Dreams" follows the construction of a sustainably designed, state of the art, and international volunteer-run hospital, which will provide healthcare for all. In his mother's home village, 600 miles from Lima, Dr. Luis Vasquez attempts to leave his legacy. What People Say Film Trailer. It is an essential documentary to watch for anyone wanting to learn about health care access in South American countries and why it can be such a struggle to build a hospital far away from big cities. - Program Director New York Times Student Journeys. Mortality of Dreams beautifully summarized the power of one individual to pave the way for others in achieving health equity. - Steph Huang: Global Ideas, Australia. It was interesting to see how building a hospital transforms so many facets of life (infrastructure, education) that goes far beyond medicine. - Audience member, UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine
