Coming to Independent Lens: The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room is a cinema verité portrait of one California city's public safety-net hospital as it struggles to handle patient overload in a swooning economy and a constantly shifting landscape of health care policy. The film will make its television premiere next season on Independent Lens.
