Salud Sin Papeles: Health Undocumented

ARCHIVE: 2018 FESTIVAL

  USA | 85 mins. | 2017 | Documentary Feature

Directed by: Juan Freitez  

Sparked by backlash to a neo-nazi rally and anti-immigrant laws, a group of activists organize the community to build Phoenix Allies for Community Health, a free clinic for undocumented immigrants.  The film follows nurse and social activist Jason Odhner as he journeys the crossroads of a national debate over healthcare and immigration and shares poignant stories of patients that illuminate the struggles of the marginalized undocumented community.  It highlights how the clinic and its volunteers have worked to make a dent in a problem that has plagued our country for decades.  Exploring how health care disparities perpetuate poverty, the film models a grassroots movement that can be replicated to effect change in other communities.
