This documentary film tells the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50, in both countries, are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the public relations campaigns, still active today, that have been prevalent in the United States since the early 1900s to dissuade the public from supporting national health care.

Produced by Canadian/American couple Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, The Healthcare Movie reveals the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to universal health care because of the heroism of people who took a stand nearly 50 years ago. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States for the right to quality health care for all people.

Narrated by Kiefer Sutherland 2011 65 minutes

A discussion following the film will be led by Lynn Huidekoper and Joan Simon of Health Care for All.

Free and open to the public

Sponsored by Tri-City Perspectives, Niles Discovery Church, Health Care for All, and the San Jose Peace and Justice Center
