Cinema Politica: Revolutionary Medicine: A Story of the First Garifuna Hospital

Category: movies 146

revmedOn Friday Oct. 2nd at 7pm at 180 St. John St., Fredericton, Cinema Politica Fredericton will screen the third film of its 2015-2016 season, “Revolutionary Medicine: A Story of the First Garifuna Hospital” (Beth Geglia & Jesse Freeston, Canada, 2014). This is an inspiring film about a community that got fed up and just built their own hospital. Could a remote hospital that runs on solar panels, in a community without paved roads or electricity, provide a global model for health care? Since arriving in Honduras in 1797, the Garifuna people have struggled against exclusion, discrimination and dispossession of their land. Today, their first hospital provides holistic care, for free, without receiving a cent from the government.

The film is presented in Spanish with English subtitles and is free to the public (washrooms are not accessible, sorry!). Donations welcome to help with network membership fees.
