Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner will participate in the World Premiere of the documentary film InHospitable on Saturday, November 13 at DOC NYC.
November 13 at DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival in New York City. She will be joined by patient-activists who Wagner brought together to advocate for a solution to the UPMC-Highmark “divorce” that was averted in 2019.
InHospitable, directed by Sandra Alvarez, “follows patients and activists as they band together to fight UPMC, a multi-billion dollar nonprofit hospital system that was limiting vital care for hundreds of thousands of vulnerable patients in western Pennsylvania,” according to a press release from the filmmakers.
