August Special Summer Film Event - ESCAPE FIRE: FIGHT to RESCUE HEALTHCARE

Firefighters will burn the grass around themselves to create a fuel-free safe spot. This is known as an “escape fire.”  The term has come to mean an unconventional or counterintuitive solution to a difficult problem. Escape Fire, the movie, tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? This award-winning film 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 examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in an 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.

Tucson’s own Dr. Andrew Weil and others speak out on the need for drastic changes in the way we approach healthcare, offering concepts for solutions which are gaining ground on various levels. Escape Fire is about finding a way out. It’s about saving the health of a nation.
