Directed by Farihah Zaman & Jeff Reichert | 2013
"Excellent and timely"
—Filmmaker Magazine

Amid the nation’s ongoing debate over health care reform, this bracing new documentary examines the everyday realities of Americans who lack access to affordable medical treatment. Filmed during three days in the operation of a “no-cost” clinic set up annually at Bristol, Tennessee’s NASCAR speedway, Remote Area Medical documents the range of medical care the eponymous organization provides to low-income patients in the heart of Appalachia. In the process, this moving film, which won the Special Jury Prize at IFF Boston, reveals the spirit of a community, the fragility of the human body, and the inequality of our broken health care system.

Producer: Jeff Reichert, Farihah Zaman, Dan O'Meara
Director of Photography: Jarred Alterman, Steven Bognar, Gary Griffin, Nadia Hallgren, Jeff Reichert, Erick Stoll, Errol Webber
Editor: Sam Pollard
