Confessions of a Good Samaritan

Directed by Penny Lane

Cast: Penny Lane

Would you donate your kidney to save a stranger’s life? This is the question Penny Lane (“Listening to Kenny G”, “Our Nixon”) wrestles with in her provocative new documentary, CONFESSIONS OF A GOOD SAMARITAN. Told with immense humanity, honesty, and humor, Lane weaves the anxieties and challenges of her own kidney donation with the fraught history and ever-changing social norms surrounding organ donation. The result is a deeply personal and moving documentary about the nature of altruism and the science of what pushes us to act on our empathy.
