Trailer for documentary PARAMEDICO (full film available to rent here) based on the book of the same name by Benjamin Gilmour. (PARAMEDICO)

Paramédico
by Benjamin Gilmour
Check it out on Amazon.com

Benjamin Gilmour's book "Paramedico" explores the lives of emergency responders in a variety of countries, an intriguing, blood-soaked concept with plenty of drama and a dash of wait-and-see boredom.

Gilmour, an author and filmmaker from Australia who also is a trained paramedic, hopped from South Africa to the Philippines, to Thailand, Mexico and several other nations, where he spent time with various ambulance services to learn what works, what doesn't and what sets each apart from the others.

To no one's surprise, the life of a rescue worker in, say, impoverished, terror-ridden Pakistan, is quite different than that of his or her counterpart in calm, cool Iceland. The former is lucky if the ambulance contains basic medical equipment. The latter spends a lot of time in saunas.
