The Waiting Room uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital, capturing in vivid detail what it means for millions of Americans to live without health insurance. Offering a raw, intimate, and even uplifting look at how patients, staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices, the film is about one hospital, its multifaceted community, and how our common vulnerability to illness binds us together as humans.

Presented in partnership with SilverDocs

 

“A rock-solid verite docu [that] 

provides ample evidence why 

our national health-care system 

needs fixing.”

Dennis Harvey, Variety

 

One of “four healthcare 

movies the supreme court 

needs to see.”

Anthony Kaufman, Indiewire
