  • Filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke put America's broken health-care system under the microscope in this documentary highlighting the ongoing struggle for reform through personal stories of struggle, as well as interviews with noted physicians and politicians. With health-care costs on the rise and prevention measures at an all-time low, Heineman and Froemke question why the powers-that-be continue to maintain a dysfunctional status quo that favors profit over patient care, and explore the reform methods being proposed in Washington, D.C.
  • Critic Reviews
    "Cogent, convincing, determinedly non-ideological....[ESCAPE FIRE] tells us that everything we think we know about that incendiary topic might be wrong. And it offers us a way out of the morass."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Arranged in a handful of clear, concise chapters, ESCAPE FIRE: THE FIGHT TO RESCUE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE turns an unwieldy, Medusa-headed topic into a convincingly humane argument for change."
    New York Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The message of ESCAPE FIRE is one you've heard before, although few want to hear it."
    Chicago Sun-Times
