“Code Black” Screened at UUF on Oct. 20

On Oct. 20 at 4:30 pm, Movies That Matter presents Code Black, the vivid and thought-provoking filmmaking debut by physician Ryan McGarry, which gives us unprecedented access to America’s busiest Emergency Department.

Amidst real life-and-death situations, McGarry follows a dedicated team of charismatic, young doctors-in-training as they wrestle openly with both their ideals and with the realities of saving lives in a complex and overburdened system. Their training ground and source of inspiration is “C-Booth,” Los Angeles County Hospital’s legendary trauma bay, the birthplace of Emergency Medicine, where “more people have died and more people have been saved than in any other square footage in the United States.”

Code Black offers a tense, doctor’s-eye view, right into the heart of the healthcare debate, bringing the audience face to face with America’s only 24/7 safety net.

The film is part of the monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
