About this item

"Escape Fire: The Fight To Rescue American Healthcare" tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: how can we save our badly broken healthcare system? American healthcare costs are rising so rapidly that they could reach $4.2 trillion annually, roughly 20 percent of our gross domestic product, within ten years. We spend $300 billion a year on pharmaceutical drugs - almost as much as the rest of the world combined. We pay more, yet our health outcomes are worse. About 65 percent of Americans are overweight and almost 75 percent of healthcare costs are spent on preventable diseases that are the major causes of disability and death in our society. It's not surprising that healthcare tops many Americans' concerns and is at the center of a political firestorm in our nation's Capitol. But the current battle over cost and access does not ultimately address the root of the problem: we have a disease-care system, not a healthcare system. "Escape Fire" examines the powerful forces maintaining the status quo, a medical 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. This 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. "Escape Fire" is about finding a way out. It's about saving the health of a nation.

Audio Commentary with Directors/Producers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, Deleted Scenes, Q&A with Directors/Producers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, Behind-The-Scenes on the "Escape Fire" Shoot.

Subtitles: English SDH (Subtitles for Deaf and Hearing Impaired) and Spanish.
