Science, faith and grief intersect in the remarkable documentary HOPE FROZEN. The film tells the story of Thai scientists Sahatorn and Nareerat Naovaratpong and their fight to save their two year old daughter Einz from cancer – and when that fails, to cryogenically freeze her body in the hope of resurrecting her some time in the future. Touching on fundamental questions regarding life and humanity, this touching family portrait won the prize for best international documentary during this year’s Hot Docs documentary festival.
