HAPI HOUR SEMINAR: Netflix's "Bleeding Edge" Screening
We are happy to invite the GU Community and the public to the screening of a Netflix documentary, "Bleeding Edge."
In THE BLEEDING EDGE, Academy Award nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND) turn their sights on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily. Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?
From a NYTimes review:
"'The Bleeding Edge” isn’t an anti-medical film, but a look at calamities caused when the obsession for profit overwhelms an industry. Mr. Dick uses no devious camera tricks, and the soundtrack, by Jeff Beal, is tense yet restrained." -https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/26/movies/bleeding-edge-review-medical-devices.html
Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman, Professor of Pharmacology & Physiology at Georgetown University, Co-Director of the MS Health and the Public Interest (HAPI) Graduate Program appears in the film.
