“Sicko,” a documentary that examines this country’s health care system and pharmaceutical industry, will be shown this Saturday, April 29 in the Community Room of the Redding Library, 1100 Parkview Avenue. The film begins at 3 p.m. and admission is free.
“Sicko” was produced and directed by legendary filmmaker Michael Moore. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and received a 17-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film compares health care delivery in the United States with the universal coverage that is offered in Canada, France, the United Kingdom, and Cuba. Critic Stephen Schaefer of the Boston Globe described the documentary as “a very strong and very honest film about a health system that’s totally corrupt and that is without any care for its patients.”
