Issue: Solving the Healthcare Crisis
With a clarion call for action, Escape Fire argues that we MUST DO SOMETHING drastic to save our badly damaged healthcare system. Acclaimed filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke deftly weave expert commentary and dramatic intimate stories to illuminate the failures of our nation’s medical industry, a system that is more concerned with disease than health. This powerful documentary, a must-see for both providers and patients, examines why the more we spend on medical care, the worse the situation becomes, with an out-of-control system threatening to destroy the national economy. After the screening, the filmmakers will discuss how they are using their outreach campaign to change the public conversation on healthcare.
