Storyline

A debate over healthcare has been raging nationwide, but what's been lost in the discussion are the American citizens who live day after day, year after year without solutions for their most basic needs. Remote Area Medical documents the annual three-day "pop-up" medical clinic organized by the non-profit Remote Area Medical (RAM) in Bristol, Tennessee's NASCAR speedway. Instead of a film about policy, Remote Area Medical is a film about people, about a proud Appalachian community banding together to try and provide some relief for friends and neighbors who are simply out of options.

They(RAM) had to close up in other countries. Because they are overwhelmed here in the US. This shows the reality of systemic failures in our country. Graphic reality. How have we let ourselves get to this situation? Folks who are economically trapped, imprisoned at home. The few jobs available can't sustain the people working them. Without health care and insurance, the only course for some is illegal. Or just waiting for the pain to stop. Or dying. I couldn't watch this without getting saddened, and angry, and so disappointed. I have the highest respect for all the people who participate in getting medical help to those in dire need. Politicians should be made to watch this movie, and write a public review.
