The Healthcare Movie Trailer

Both Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg (Producers/Directors of The Healthcare Movie) will be in attendance. Also activists participating in the Drive for Universal Healthcare (D.U.H.), including its founder, Sue Saltmarsh.

Produced by Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, and narrated by Kiefer Sutherland

The Healthcare Movie provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point in history they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50 in both countries are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the public relations campaigns, still active today, that have been prevalent in the U.S. since the early 1900's to dissuade the American public from supporting national health care.

The Healthcare Movie reveals the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to universal heath care because of the heroism of people who took a stand nearly 50 years ago. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people.

Every day people are dying or going bankrupt due to the ills of the United States system. Who are we in the face of this human tragedy? If you agree that people are more important than profits, then you must see this film.

The Latest News

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More

Sun, Oct 6, 2013 - LIVE: Syd Straw at WAMC-FM’s Performing Arts Studio

ALBANY - It's been more than 20 years since singer-songwriter Syd Straw graced an Albany stage, but those shows at the now long-defunct QE2 still burn brightly in the memories of more than a few who were there back then. Read More
