The Vanderbilt Department of Psychiatry presents Psychiatry in the Movies: “Escape Fire,” followed by a panel discussion.
The award-winning Sundance hit 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? Co-directed by Matthew Heineman and Academy Award nominee Susan Froemke (Lalee’s Kin: The Legacy of Cotton), 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. ESCAPE FIRE interweaves dramatic personal stories with the efforts of leaders battling to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the U.S. military.
