About the film:
The Waiting Room is a character-driven documentary film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an Oakland public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients.
The Waiting Room lays bare the struggle and determination of both a community and an institution coping with limited resources and no road map for navigating a health care landscape marked by historic economic and political dysfunction. It is a film about one hospital, its multifaceted community, and how our common vulnerability to illness binds us together as humans.
