got healthcare?, an Obamacare Documentary to Screen in Iran

Out in the Street Films is pleased to announce the documentary 'got healthcare?' will screen on December 16, 2013 at 9:30 in the Felestin the Cinema Verite Film Festival in Tehran, an Iran international film festival. 'got healthcare?' covers the events in Congress and in American streets that lead to much debate and a formulation of the ACA (Affordable Care Act), also known as Obamacare. The film contains interviews with over 65 doctors, nurses and activists, as well as street and Congressional protests.
Locations include numerous town hall meetings, street rallies, and Presidential speeches. Director-Producer Jon Raymond attempted to show different sides of the issues by getting responses to questions from one interviewee and posing them to another, making for a stream of conversation style film. He found the experience enlightening to facts about American health care he was unaware of. Executive post producer, Maureen Cruise was initially filmed as a street protester and later became an involuntary sort of narrator with her eloquent and comprehensive interview, used throughout the film, to explain the failing state of American healthcare, where over 120 citizens die daily for lack of care, or the money to pay for it.
