  4. 4. Rampant drunk-driving, perilous roadways and a culture that eschews seatbelts and helmets, have led the Dominican Republic to be ranked as one of the top 3 most dangerous countries to drive in the world. Sparse access to EMS and no 911 service in most cities force locals to fend for themselves in the wake of road accidents. Victims can’t get the immediate medical attention needed and often can’t afford to pay for ambulance and hospital bills. The Most Dangerous Place to Drive on Earth RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT

  7. 7. Rescate Ambar is a gritty and compelling documentary short about the heroics of Reynaldo Ortiz and his team of volunteer Paramedics as they rush to provide medical attention to the countless number of motor vehicle accidents in Puerto Plata, Dominican. The film will explore the psychology behind his decision to pursue this unpaid line of work for so many years. With virtually no funding and access only to donated equipment, he will describe the resilience of his team and their enduring passion to help save lives. The film will look at the mental toll it’s taken on him as well the community from being exposed to so much tragedy. The Documentary RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT
  8. 8. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT The Hero Reynaldo Ortiz, 44, is a humble Dominican who possesses a strong moral code and convictions towards honour and duty. He established Rescate Ambar in 2005 in an attempt to combat the high number of driver fatalities in his country and has worked tirelessly to attain a small fleet of used vans, retrofitted into ambulances. Every night Reynaldo will fall asleep beside a radio awaiting for the next car accident to be reported. Like all members of his team, Reynaldo works a day job, in his case as a tow truck driver, for a meagre salary in order to pay and support his volunteer activities with Rescate Ambar.
  9. 9. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT Visual style Shot with handheld, natural light, and a mobile crew, Rescate Ambar will capture the vigour of the paramedics intense line of work. A combination of realtime and slow-motion sequences will juxtapose the dichotomy of the tranquil, caribbean day time against the chaotic nights the paramedics experience. Lighting will be dark and moody, with a many sequences of Reynaldo being captured at dusk, as the chaos of the night begins to loom and weigh on him. The beautiful beaches and lush jungles of Dominican will provide a breathtaking backdrop for Reynaldo to be photographed in when he is off duty.
  10. 10. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT Narrative approach Rescate Ambar will be a cinematic documentary that will have a introspective tone as it examines what drives Reynaldo as a paramedic. The film will move beyond the traditional documentary narrative and will use impressionistic sequences to depict the journey of Reynaldo’s emotions and resolve. Not only will we see Reynaldo in real-time action in the paramedic field but we will also see him interacting with family and colleagues outside of the chaotic work environment. His voice will be heard overtop various sequences of his daily life both as a paramedic but also a father and husband. These scenes will be punctuated by brief moments of action as the cameras rush alongside the Rescate Ambar team while they attend to car accidents. As Reynaldo talks about the fragility of Dominican life as we will see him holding his new born child at the beach and walking with his children as they go to school.
  11. 11. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT The film crew will capture controlled sequences of young Dominican motorcycle riders on their motor bikes. These scenes will depict and illuminate their anarchic approach to driving and road safety.
  12. 12. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT When filming car accidents the camera will very rarely show the victims or their injured bodies, but rather focus on the faces of the paramedics and the by-standers. The film is not set out to depict gratuitous gore but rather focus on the strength and passion of those working amongst the tragedy.
  13. 13. RESCATE AMBAR: DOCUMENTARY SHORT Looking to the future Despite the difficulties he and his team face, Reynaldo spends his time mentoring new paramedics and continuing to provide aid at the innumerable accidents. He dreams of one day establishing the organization as a fully-funded and officially recognized EMS service. Corrupt Government officials have often used funding dedicated to Reynaldo’s cause for their own personal gain. Despite this, he and his team remain dedicated to the cause, acting as angels in the night, providing relief on the world’s most dangerous roads.
