Raising awareness. One film at a time. Every 3rd Tuesday. Salem Progressive Film Series believes the power to effect change begins with knowledge. They find the best documentaries around and pair them with dynamic speakers to spread ideas, create discussion, and inspire action.
The United States pays twice as much for healthcare as any other industrialized nation, yet it still does not provide care for all or its citizens. While the Affordable Care Act has helped some people, many of us are feeling the pinch of rising costs and narrowing networks. Polls show that 58% of Americans favor a nationally funded public healthcare program. So why has the U.S. Congress not yet passed-or even considered-such a plan? This documentary delves into what single payer health care is, how it saves money, and what behind-the-scenes heroes are doing to clear the fog of misperception that keeps us from moving forward.
