\"The Waiting Room\"
The Waiting Room
Friday & Saturday, January 25-26, 5:30pm
The Waiting Room is a character-driven documentary film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients. The film offers a raw, intimate and even uplifting look at how patients, staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices. The film lays bare the struggle and determination of both a community and an institution coping with limited resources and no road map for navigating a health care landscape marked by historic economic and political dysfunction. It is a film about one hospital, its multifaceted community, and how our common vulnerability to illness binds us together as humans.
