National PBS Broadcast Premiere
on America ReFramed – March 20
An official selection at the 2016 Heartland Film Festival and Cucolorus Film Festival, and winner of the Audience Choice Award at the 2016 Indy Film Fest, THE INVISIBLE PATIENTS pulls back the curtain on a hidden population of nearly 5 million homebound and home-limited individuals who are unable to access the healthcare system due to a combination of functional impairment, chronic illness and poverty.
Their stories ask us all to wrestle with not just healthcare policy, but as importantly, how to mend today’s fraying social fabric.
“The Invisible Patients is a powerful film that brings into the light challenges faced by the frail homebound and the heroic work they, their families, and health care providers perform to preserve their humanity.”
