Latest Press ReleaseReason Cinema Promotes New Documentary 'Bitter Pill' on Improving America's Health Care System
(Washington, DC, Feb 27, 2013)—Brain surgeon and filmmaker Dr. Vivekanand Palavali has released his second documentary, Bitter Pill, which takes an in-depth look at the problems with American health care that unnecessarily drive up costs, reduce access and drag down the quality of care.
Bitter Pill is partnering with the American Humanist Association’s Reason Cinema to promote the film. The American Humanist Association previously promoted Dr. Palavali‘s first documentary, Creator of God: A Brain Surgeon’s Story, which addressed how the concept of “God” came into human existence and chronicled his personal journey toward becoming an atheist.
Bringing Humanism & Film Together
Reason Cinema is a film series project sponsored by the American Humanist Association. Since 2008, the AHA has hosted free screenings of films with humanist or progressive themes open to the public in Washington DC and other cities in the United States. These screenings are followed by informative discussions with directors, producers, and leading philosophers and policy experts on humanist issues. We aim to advance a secular agenda through innovative films that connect humanism and the arts.
The AHA has recently helped promote the award-winning documentary FUEL, PBS's miniseries Becoming Human, comedian Bill Maher's Religulous, the major motion picture The Golden Compass, Vivek Palavali's Creator of God, and more.
If you are a filmmaker interested in promoting your film, interested in volunteering with Reason Cinema, or have questions or comments, contact us here.
