Praised as “bittersweet...poignant. Those stories aren't unlike a country ballad, and are arranged with a sensitivity to detail and the lives behind them, though not without interludes of rough humor by The Wall Street Journal, Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman’s documentary follows a three-day clinic held at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee and shows what it means when rural America does not have the access it needs to sufficient healthcare. “This film is a glimpse into the lives of everyday rural Americans who struggle to access care,” Alan Morgan, CEO of the National Rural Health Association said. “Rural Americans, on average, are poorer, sicker and older than their urban counterparts. Remote Area Medical is a compelling story of those desperate for medical care.” Filmmaker Jeff Reichert will also be appearing for a Q&A.
