Health care is in trouble, but what can we do? Local filmmaker Meredith Corrado, will be premiering the documentary “Code Blue: Resuscitating Rural Surgery,” at Presser Performing Arts Center in Mexico on Saturday, Mar. 2. Tickets are now available at www.codebluefilm.com.
The film’s producers have opened up a typically very elite event to the general public. You are invited to join in the premiere screening of the documentary which includes the chance to meet and mingle with the cast and crew over complementary drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
This formal event is an exciting way to open up a dialogue about how we all may influence the development of healthcare near us.
“Code Blue” kicked off filming in June of 2012. Subjects were filmed across the country including eight surgeons and two hospital CEO’s in Missouri. The director’s father is a general surgeon in Mexico, Mo., and inspired the film.
Founded in April 2008, Corrado Studios has produced marketing videos, music videos, additional content for a video game, and a conference DVD for a nonprofit organization. “Code Blue: Resuscitating Rural Surgery” is our second feature-length documentary.
