Director: Heather Angel Chandler

Heather Angel Chandler started her career as an award-winning television news medical reporter. In 2007, she left the "if it bleeds, it leads" world of local news and founded her video production company, Innovative Multimedia Group. Heather enjoyed the process of storytelling through video and sound, but wanted to tell the kinds of stories that she felt were really meaningful.

Director’s Statement

After learning about Nodding Syndrome, Heather became determined to shed light on the unimaginable conditions children with Nodding Syndrome and their families are dealing with. Despite travel warnings and no budget for this film, Heather and another video journalist jumped on a plane to Uganda with no plan in place other than to expose the story of Nodding Syndrome.

"A Question of Humanity" is a self-funded “passion project” that was created by Heather and other professionals who graciously donated their time to this project because it's a story that must be told.
