We Are Alive – The Fight to Save Braddock Hospital (DVD)
We Are Alive! The Fight To Save Braddock Hospital is a documentary feature film about the fight for quality healthcare for all.
It is about the fight that residents from Braddock, Pennsylvania, and the Mon Valley waged against the $10 billion non-profit medical corporate giant – University of Pittsburgh Medical Center – to keep their community hospital (UPMC Braddock) open.
This ‘cinema verite’ style documentary was shot over a 2 1/2 year period, from October 2009 to June 2012. The film follows the community from disbelief, to anger, to organizing, to taking it to the streets.
