Storyline

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 Anonymous

Escape Fire
1 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unlike the bombastic, grenade throwing of Michael Moore's films, Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke have managed to create a thought provoking and even-handed look at the very complex subject of the American health care system. Instead of yelling or lecturing us, the balanced tone of this film draws you in and immerses you in the subject matter to better understand the scope of the problems, and the solutions. Some of the answers the film unveils are so simple and obvious that they will give you an OMG / aha! moment. ESCAPE FIRE is a quiet and low key film that is truly capable of provoking big changes in our health care system
