Clínica de Migrantes: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Puentes de Salud is a volunteer-run clinic that provides free medical care to undocumented immigrants in south Philadelphia. Here, doctors and nurses work for free to serve people who would otherwise fall through the cracks.
Clinica de Migrantes, a potent film follows the workers and patients of Puentes through months of routine care and growth. Along the way, the film puts a face to the millions of people who exist on the margins of society: people displaced from their homelands, separated from their families, unfamiliar with the customs, unable to obtain health insurance and terrified to come forward to seek medical help.
2016 40 minutes
The program will include Skyping with the filmmakers, and discussion of the health care situation for immigrants in Santa Clara County and how we can fight for quality health care for all.
Everybody In, Nobody Out!
