Release Year: 2008 |  Director: Roger Weisberg

Critical Condition, a new feature from Academy Award-nominated documentarian Roger Weisberg, paints a disturbing and gripping portrait of what happens when you’re sick and uninsured in America. The unforgettable subjects of this cinema verite documentary discover that being uncovered can cost them their jobs, health, homes, savings, and even their lives.

Unlike Michael Moore’s Sicko, which illustrated the problems of people with private insurance, Critical Condition looks at the harrowing struggles of people battling serious illness with no insurance whatsoever. By exposing the tragic human dimensions of this crisis, Critical Condition will make viewers feel both outraged and motivated to address this national disgrace at the precise moment when health care reform will be debated during the run-up to the presidential election.
