Dr. Riaan Van Der Wart of the Pacific Northwest, releases the trailer for his new film, The Family Doctor, to be released September 2020> May 19, 2020

"The Family Doctor”, is the story of a boy who wanted to become a doctor. During his training as a doctor in South Africa, a fateful encounter with a “Witchdoctor” sparks his curiosity in healing. He finishes his Medical Degree and he pursues the life of a modern day doctor. Many years later in rural Canada, he ends up burnt out. Not finding the Medicine he needs to recover, he sets out on an expedition in search of a cure. He meets a woman who knows where the Medicine is hidden, but the Doctor needs to discover it for himself. A compass is gifted to assist him on the toughest journey he is yet to make.

Based on a true story. Watch the trailer here>
