Details

Clinica de Migrantes: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is a medical documentary about Puentes de Salus, one of the only health clinics in the US that provides healthcare to undocumented immigrants. By law, illegal immigrants cannot obtain health insurance, and receive no regular medical treatment. Puentes is a volunteer-run network of clinics that provide preventative care to the Latino community of South Philadelphia. A team of volunteers led by Dr. Steve Larson attend to an ever-growing population of housekeepers, prep cooks, and construction workers. Following the film screening is a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Larson.
