Saturday, May 19th: ‘The Waiting Room’ + Cat Martino

The Waiting Room
The Old American Can Factory (232 Third St., Brooklyn)
$12, advance purchase suggested

The American medical system is in tatters, and political arguments often overlook the most fundamental element: human beings’ health. Director Peter Nicks knew the problems would be most evident, the drama most poignant, in one place: a low-income, urgent care waiting room. This elegantly crafted documentary has an intimate approach that reveals the myriad systematic failures in a way that is compelling and personal. You can’t watch The Waiting Room and still ignore the call for change. Working with The Fledging Fund, the Center for Health Media Policy, and the film’s own interactive website, Rooftop Films is pleased to present this event committed to positive health care activism.
