Watch humanity endure through war, violence and displacement, and learn the personal stories of the people who dedicate their lives to working on the front lines.

“Beyond the Beach – The Hell and the Hope”

Director: Graeme A Scott, Buddy Squires
Producer: Kathy LoPrimo
Production Company: Dover Street Entertainment
Available on: Amazon Prime Video in the UK, US and Italy. Popflick (US).
Coming soon: Tubi (US, Canada, Australia and NZ), LocalNow (US) and Plex (worldwide).

More than five years on from the events of the film, EMERGENCY’s Kabul Surgical Centre continues to serve as a key traumatology hospital in Afghanistan’s capital, with more than half of patients admitted in 2023 treated for war-related injuries.

The primary care clinics in Iraq were transferred to local health authorities as they approached self-sustainability, the goal of every EMERGENCY project, while operations at the Rehabilitation and Social Reintegration Centre continue, run entirely by local staff.

And, EMERGENCY has escalated its work in the Mediterranean, launching its own search and rescue ship, Life Support, in December 2022.

Since 1994, EMERGENCY has helped over 12.5 million people.
