With the healthcare debate taking center stage this election year, the KCET Cinema Series screening of "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare" was a great opportunity for audience members to learn more about the issue. After the screening of the film, host Pete Hammond was joined by health expert Dr. David Kipper to answer audience questions.
About the film:
The newest investigative documentary out of Sundance from filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke dives deeply into the frayed and hotly contested world of American healthcare. "Escape Fire" not only chronicles the for-profit facets of the industry that place 'quick-fixes' before prevention and proceeds before patients - and the serious repercussions of these priorities - but is also an awe-inspiring journey into the way average Americans and medical professionals alike are working on new and innovative ways to transform healthcare for the better.
