Free Showing of Doctored at Eastside Food Co-op
Aug 31, 2013 11:10AM
Art District Chiropractic and the Eastside Food Co-op, in northeast Minneapolis, will hold a free screening of the documentary Doctored at 7 p.m. on September 19 at Eastside Food Co-op. The event is open to the public.
Doctored, by award-winning producer Jeff Hays (On Native Soil), explores the monopolization of the medical system in the United States. Some of the questions the movie seeks to answer include: Is much of what we “know” about modern medicine just slick marketing from companies that profit when we’re in pain (or by putting us in pain)? Why aren’t we being told about the successes of natural therapies? Why do so many people think chiropractors are “quacks,” nutritional supplements are a waste of money and acupuncture is a fringe therapy?
The Los Angeles Times wrote, “Doctored is an involving, well-crafted, humane look at a topic that stands to affect us all.”
A brief question-and-answer session will follow the film.
