FHFF Winter Series Presents: The Bleeding Edge

The Bleeding Edge is a 2018 original documentary film that investigates the $400 billion medical device industry.

The Friday Harbor Film Festival is pleased to present yet another important film produced by our own islander Amy Herdy who will attend, introduce and answer a Q&A after the film is screened.

“Medical companies are responding to a critical new documentary on the health care industry. “The Bleeding Edge” speaks with patients suffering apparent complications from medical devices such as cobalt hip replacements and the Essure permanent birth control device.” CBS
