The award-winning Sundance hit documentary ESCAPE FIRE: THE FIGHT TO RESCUE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: how can we save our badly broken healthcare system? This thought-provoking documentary exposes a U.S. healthcare system designed to profit from disease not health, reward quantity over quality, and promote high-tech over high-touch.
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.
BONUS FEATURES: Audio commentary with the directors, a "making of" featurette, deleted and extended scenes from the film, updates on some of the main stories, and clips from the Sundance World Premiere.
