He Saved His Own Life After a Brutal Stabbing. Now He Saves Others.

Israeli Hananel David was brutally stabbed ... and survived. Following the attack, he faced his PTSD to become a paramedic and pay forward the gift of life that was given to him. Filmmaker Jake Oleson focuses on David's selflessness as violence rages on in the Middle East.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
