Abstract:
For my senior thesis, I created and exhibited a mini-documentary, titled Searching for Reform. The film features the perspectives of various experts on health care policy and provides a new context for discussing health care reform. Although the United States’ health care system has recently undergone reform, I believe there is more to be debated, more issues that need fleshing out. By deterritorializing the current conversation surrounding health reform, my film calls the viewer to reevaluate the United States’ health policies.
