Aspen Institute to screen “The Bleeding Edge” on Monday
August 12, 2018
The Aspen Institute will present "The Bleeding Edge" as the final film of the 2018 the Eisner | Lauder New Views Screening Program.
Set for 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13, at Paepcke Auditorium on the Institute's Aspen Meadows campus, the film addresses America's technologically advanced health care system and how preventable medical harm has become one of the leading causes of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial.
In "The Bleeding Edge," Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering ("The Invisible War," :The Hunting Ground") focus on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily.
Dick also will participate in a post-screening conversation.
Tickets are $20 and are available at http://www.aspenshowtix.com, 970-920-5770, or through the Wheeler Opera House box office. Early ticket purchase is encouraged, as a full-capacity audience is expected for this event.
