BLEED OUT DOCUMENTARY
In association with IMPACT PARTNERS
A CREATIVE CHAOS VMG and THE BURROWS OF HOLLYWOOD production
A film by Steve Burrows
After a routine partial hip replacement operation leaves his mother in a coma with permanent brain damage, what starts as a son’s video diary becomes a citizen’s investigation into the future of American health care. Shot over the course of ten years, using archival footage, vérité scenes, undercover spy cams, courtroom testimony and interviews with family and experts, the award-winning, critically acclaimed BLEED OUT goes deep inside a flawed healthcare system. Part medical mystery and legal thriller, part investigative journey and meditation on family, this harrowing personal story is a cautionary tale that reveals medical error is the third leading cause of death in America.
