Film: THE WAITING ROOM
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.  

The ER waiting room serves as the grounding point for the film, capturing in vivid detail what it means for millions of Americans to live without health insurance. Young victims of gun violence take their turn alongside artists and small business owners who lack insurance. Steel workers, taxi cab drivers and international asylum seekers crowd the halls. The film weaves the stories of several patients  as well as the hospital staff charged with caring for them  as they cope with the complexity of the nation's public health care system, while weathering the storm of a national recession.

Part of SPACE Gallery's Health/Care Film Series.  Followed by discussion.
