Can’t Wait to See



THE WAITING ROOM is a documentary film presenting a behind-the-scenes look at health care and insurance issues — or lack thereof.  Director Peter Nicks studied documentary film-making with Broadcast Journalism Professor Linda Schact Gage at UC Berkeley. After graduating, Nick became interested in telling the story of the human drama unfolding 24 / 7 at Highlands Hospital, where his wife worked.


THE WAITING ROOM “…is a character-driven documentary film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients. The film — using a blend of cinema verité and characters’ voice over — offers a raw, intimate, and even uplifting look at how patients, executive staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices. It is a film about fighting for survival when the odds are stacked against you.”
