On TV: CARE

Coming to PBS’s America ReFramed this coming Tuesday, September 5:
CARE

Director:
Deirdre Fishel

Premiere:
Sheffield 2016

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, AFI Docs, SF LaborFest, Virginia

About:
A look at the challenges facing elder caregiving in America.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
As our population ages, the need for health care also rises. For those who wish to remain in their homes, the kind of in-depth, personal connection provided by compassionate caregivers is essential. Fishel’s empathetic film follows three of these workers, uncovering the failures of the US eldercare system, which finds caregivers earning poverty wages and their clients struggling to afford essential services.
