FHFF Winter Series Presents: The Bleeding Edge

Posted May 18, 2019 at 8:29 am by

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

Writ­ten and direct­ed by Kir­by Dick and pro­duced by Amy Zier­ing and Amy Herdy, it pre­miered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val, where it was billed as “the stuff of dystopi­an nightmares.”
