Sergio Vieira de Mello - documentary

This weekend I watched a documentary that I highly recommend: Sergio.
Produced by HBO, the documentary tells the story of the Brazilian Sergio Vieira de Mello - one of the most important UN diplomats - since his early career until the day he died buried in the UN building, in Baghdad, on a mission in 2003 .
Extremely well produced, the documentary has emotional testimonials from people who have worked with him, his girlfriend and even the firefighters who tried to get him out. The documentary shows that there are competent people out there able to give their life to make the world a better place.

I bought the DVD through HBO's website but if you rather read the book the documentary is based on, you can buy it here.
