Congratulations are in order for the cast and crew of Escape Fire: The Fight To Rescue American Healthcare.  The documentary was just picked up to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2012!

The film "examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo, a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care," and presents the vision of those medical professionals and other advocates working tirelessly for a more effective, health-centered system. You can see the trailer and more information here.

Once again, congratulations to the creators, Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, and to the rest of the cast and crew. We're looking forward to seeing the final product!
