To all Blue Virginia readers in the Fredericksburg Area,
Dr Chris Lillis and Karen Dulaney – the Director of the Moss Free Clinic – have arranged a screening of an award winning documentary film in Fredericksburg on Wednesday, January 23rd. The film will be shown at the Paragon Theater at 7:30 pm (the theater behind the Spotsylvania Mall on Route 3).
Escape Fire premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and has gone on to win multiple awards at various film festivals (Full Frame, Silverdocs, Newport Beach and Berkshire). Roger Ebert in a recent blog referred to Escape Fire as “Extraordinary”. His official review here: ( http://rogerebert.suntimes.com… )
For those of you who haven’t seen or heard about the film, a brief synopsis:
ESCAPE FIRE: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly system is finally gaining ground. The film follows dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. ESCAPE FIRE is about a way out. It’s about saving the health of a nation.
