The Ebola virus crisis is brought into vivid focus through this on-the-ground documentary directed by Sarita Siegel and UW-Madison’s own Gregg Mitman. In the Shadow of Ebola tells the story of Emmanuel Urey, a Liberian student at school here in Madison, and his desperate effort to get family members safely out of Monrovia before the virus spreads uncontrollably. Struggling with visa issues and government mandated quarantine, the plight of Urey’s family and their attempts to make it to safety bring this issue harrowingly to life and extremely close to home.
