It's not surprising that healthcare tops many Americans' concerns and is at the center of a political firestorm in our nation's Capital. But the current battle over cost and access does not ultimately address the root of the problem: we have a disease-care system, not a healthcare system.
Escape Fire examines the powerful forces maintaining the status quo, 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. Award-winning filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke follow 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 finding a way out. It's about saving the health of a nation. (USA, 2012, 95min., DCP | Dir. Matthew Heineman and Susan)
