“Remote,” directed by Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman, made its world premiere at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. The film was produced by Reichert, Zaman and Dan O’Meara.
The film takes its name from the nonprofit Remote Area Medical, which operates pop-up health care clinics. The film was shot over three days in 2012 at the Nascar speedway in Bristol, Tenn., where nearly 2,000 people received free medical, dental, and vision care provided by a team of medical volunteers.
Cinedigm, which will release the film in the spring, said the film “provides viewers with an unobstructed look at what it means to be an American without access to basic healthcare, a valuable perspective at a time when the battle over Obamacare has dominated the news cycle.”
