Event Description
We Are Alive! w/Tony Buba

PREVIEW: We Are Alive! - with Tony Buba
Country: USA/Pittsburgh
Directors: Tony Buba, Tom Dubensky
One of Pittsburgh's most successful and prolific filmmakers, Tony Buba began documenting his hometown of Braddock, PA in 1972. He will present a preview of his newest work-in-progress, We Are Alive! The Fight To Save Braddock Hospital, a documentary about the residents of Braddock and the Mon Valley fighting the 10 billion dollar non-profit medical corporate giant (UPMC) to keep their community hospital open. UPMC claimed the hospital was under-utilized, but many believe the hospital was over-utilized by the wrong people: the working poor, or those with no health insurance. Shot from October 2009 to June 2012, Buba uses his cinema verite style to follow the community from disbelief, to anger, to taking it to the streets. We Are Alive! celebrates this fight, the citizens of the Mon Valley, and the grassroots organization Save Our Community Hospitals, who continue to battle for quality healthcare. (2012; 85 min)
