‘InHospitable’ Director Sandra Alvarez Reveals Why Pittsburgh’s Healthcare Situation is Not So Different Than Other Cities
“These healthcare organizations are buying out all the doctors’ offices and hospitals around the area and essentially creating these monopolies.”
Awards Daily’s Megan McLachlan talks to director Sandra Alvarez about her documentary InHospitable, which screened at the 2022 Miami Film Festival.
While watching the 2019 presidential primary debates, director Sandra Alvarez was struck by the way the candidates on both sides of the aisle tackled questions around healthcare.
“It was seeing them list out all the problems in the United States,” says Alvarez. “We have insurance, we have pharma, but you don’t hear about hospitals in Republican or Democratic debates. It’s something I had this question about, of looking at healthcare and trying to figure out the role of hospitals.”
