CONSCIENTIOUS PROJECTOR THIS THURSDAY OCTOBER 8 7 p.m.

SICKO

THE ARMORY CENTER FOR THE ARTS

145 NORTH RAYMOND OLD PASADENA

Michael Moore’s bold, compassionate 2007 examination of the plight of Americans betrayed by the for-profit health insurance industry remains as relevant and true today as ever. Recently, on Bill Moyers Journal, former Cigna spokesperson Wendell Potter acknowledged that Moore “hit the nail on the head” with his controversial exposé. The film illuminates the current U.S. debate over “government-run health care” and the “public option” through moving personal stories and taking the viewer to Canada, Great Britain, France and Cuba where doctors and patients, liberal and conservative alike, extol the virtues and benefits of universal coverage. If you’ve seen it before, it’s worth seeing again in the context of today’s unfolding events.

Pasadena physician and health reform advocate Dr. J. Donald Thomas will introduce the film and lead our community discussion.

Conscientious Projector is sponsored by Sustainable World, a Peace & Justice ministry of All Saints Church in association with Theatre of the Oppressed and The Armory Center for the Arts.

Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons. For more information, contact Bob Brummel at 626.794.2587 or visit www.michaelmoore.com/sicko.
