UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATION, SANTA ROSA
ADVOCATES FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE FILM PROJECT PRESENTS:
Your Film Project has chosen “SICKO” by Michael Moore as our kick-off film for our 2018 – 2019 series. Throughout the year we will present films addressing the following issues, suggested by you in our recent survey:
PHYSICAL HEALTH,/MENTAL HEALTH/HEALTH CARE/LONGEVITY/
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE/CHOICES IN DYING/ DISABILITY RIGHTS
“SICKO”, a 2007 documentary, explores health care in the U.S., focusing on the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Throughout this film, you will be shaking your head, sometimes in disbelief and often in outrage as Michael Moore offers comparisons between the profiteering, non-universal U.S. system of healthcare with the non-profit, universal healthcare systems of Cuba, Canada, the United Kingdom, and France.
Discussion, as always, follows the viewing of the film. Please bring whatever you wish to eat. We will offer a snack, not lunch. This is a full-length film, running for 123 minutes. We hope you will be able to plan your afternoon to include the entire film. You’ll not want to miss any of the segments.
