A controversial debate over the American healthcare system has been raging for quite some time. And Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman’s new documentary “Remote Area Medical” will surely add to the conversation as it narrows in on the people, not the policy, behind the present day system.
Focusing on a single three-day clinic held in the Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, “Remote Area Medical” provides an insider’s perspective on the ebb and flow of the medical event, from the intense early morning ticketing to the routine check-ups and the risky means to which some patients resort for pain relief. As the non-fiction feature weaves together stories about doctors and patients alike, it creates a full-bodied look at the state of modern healthcare in America.
