Product Notes

Between 46 and 50 million Americans have no health insurance and the numbers continue to grow. Last year alone approximately 2.2 million lost their coverage. In just the time it will take to watch this film 377 more Americans will become uninsured. Most tragically 22000 Americans will die this year because they lack health insurance. A bracingly honest documentary CRITICAL CONDITION investigates America's worsening health care crisis by following a diverse group of uninsured individuals as they battle critical illnesses without adequate medical care. It is through their eyes and words that we are taken through the gaping holes in the health care system where care is often delayed or denied. Ultimately the unforgettable subjects of CRITICAL CONDITION discover that being uninsured can cost them their jobs health homes savings and even lives. A few sobering statistics reinforce these disturbing personal stories-the most compelling perhaps are those that illustrate the enormous cost in dollars and human suffering that we pay by denying sick patients access to routine primary care. Through intimate stories that illuminate the emotional financial and medical impact of battling illness without insurance CRITICAL CONDITION sends a subtle yet deeply foreboding message about the alarming state of the American health care system. DVD Features: Filmmaker Interview with Roger Weisberg; Filmmaker Biography *NOTE - aspect ratio corrected to 16:9*.
