The Columbus Film Council’s Near Monthly Screening Series (NMSS) 4th Tuesday Free Press Film Night moves this month to the Arena Grand Movie Theater. Cosponsored by the Free Press, the 4th Tuesday Films are documentary films that represent the underserved and underrepresented.
Money & Medicine is a Columbus International Film + Video Festival 2012 Chris Award winner, Mental + Physical Health Division.
With remarkable candor and poignancy, Money & Medicine captures the painful end-of-life treatment choices made by patients and their families, ranging from very aggressive interventions in the ICU to palliative care at home. The film also investigates the controversy surrounding diagnostic testing and screening as well as the shocking treatment variations among patients receiving a variety of elective procedures. Just as the national debate over health care cost containment and deficit reduction heats up, these intimate patient portraits put a human face on the crisis facing American medicine.
Admission is free.
