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 – using a blend of cinema verité and characters’ voiceover – offers a raw, intimate, and even uplifting look at how patients, staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices.
Directed by Peter Nicks.
Director will be present for Q7A after the film.
Doors open at 6:30pm, film starts at 7pm.
$5 suggested donation, nobody turned away for lack of funds
