ESCAPE FIRE: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in 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. ESCAPE FIRE follows dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. The film is about a way out, about saving the health of a nation. Written by
Important and Compelling Documentary, Neither Political nor Preachy
An interesting and compelling documentary about the state of healthcare in our country. This fast-paced and well-crafted film helps explain how the incentives in our system have derailed healthcare to become "disease-care." It also shows a few very personal stories about the importance of focusing on true "health care" and not medications or quick fixes. It's a smart film that is neither preachy nor political. Unlike so many documentaries by film makers like Michael Moore, this film presents expert information and real-life stories without injecting partisan messages. The focus of the film is to be informative, but not to hang political messages on the facts. The pace if the film is crisp and the pace keeps you engaged. This is an important film for anyone who is curious about the healthcare industry and it should be watched by anyone in the healthcare industry, policy-making or political office.
