The 24th Annual Rochester Labor Film Series presents films that celebrate workers from around the world. THE WAITING ROOM (Peter Nicks, US 2012, 81 min.) Peter Nicks’ documentary centers on the patients, doctors, and staff of Oakland California’s Highland Hospital, offering behind-the-scenes access as well as insight into our current health care system. Blending cinema verité footage with interviews with doctors, nurses, staff, and patients, The Waiting Room is an unobtrusive, personal record of the hospital’s daily functions and the challenges of treating a community of largely uninsured patients.
