The Waiting Room

Peter Nicks

This timely documentary follows the life and times of patients, doctors, and staff working in the emergency room at Highland Hospital, a safety-net hospital in Oakland, California. Both the (mostly) uninsured patients and the staff that must care for them are given the chance to tell their stories of sickness, health, distress, and hope. The film “bears poetic witness to an overlooked fact: America's health care system may be broken, but its people are anything but.” (Washington Post) Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary and Shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature.
