Free Screening at the Waco Hippodrome

Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, "The Providers" follows three healthcare providers in northern New Mexico. They work at El Centro, a group of safety-net clinics that offer care to all who walk through the doors, regardless of ability to pay. Amidst personal struggles that reflect those of their patients, the journeys of the providers unfold as they work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left out of the healthcare system. With intimate access, the documentary shows the transformative power of providers’ relationships with marginalized patients.

”Wow! Just got back from the 2019 Deep in the Heart Film Festival. What an incredible festival. You can tell it was put together by filmmakers. It really focuses on building a community and not a competition. I'm not sure what their screening process is but the quality of films I saw was much better than most of the larger festivals I've been to. Submit your film. So worth it.”
