Last year, filmmaker duo Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman (2010's election doc "Gerrymandering") made a three minute informational doc on Remote Area Medical, a free, three day pop up medical clinic in Tennessee that specializes in providing care to Americans without health insurance. You can see the short here, but ever since the two have been working on completing a full length version of the doc.

The feature, also titled "Remote Area Medical," aims to put a human face on what it means to not have health insurance. It will have its world premiere at Full Frame Film Festival, which runs from April 4th to 7th in Durham, North Carolina. It'll then move over to Hot Docs, the Canadian International Film Festival, from April 25th to May 5th. The moving doc boasts a score from longtime David Gordon Green collaborator David Wingo and was cut by Spike Lee's go to doc editor Sam Pollard. You can check out two exclusive scenes from the film below.
