Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare has been awarded The Kathleen Bryan Edwards Award for Human Rights at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in North Carolina.

Escape Fire, by Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke, asks what can be done to save our broken healthcare system. The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the current medical industry, which is designed for quick fixes rather than prevention. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2012.
