Description

Working in a system which has forgotten to consider the well-being of the people who make it up has its consequences.

We want to make a short documentary that shows how the current organization of the national health system can have negative effects on the health and vocation of the medical professionals. Professionals, people; that increasingly, are forced to respond to a productivist and dehumanized health system. A sick system that makes sick those who (under the deontological code) get involved in it.

We want to collect more than 20 testimonies from medical professionals from the National Health System in different provinces of Spain.

We want to accompany it with testimonies that inform the legal and scientific framework of this situation.

We want to give voice to the discomfort, and the reason for the discomfort of a large part of the doctors who try to carry out the work that corresponds to them.

And we want to alert of the risks of this being ignored.

Get exclusive rewards

Thanks to your patronage we will be able to make this project a reality. But we also want to offer you a series of objects and/or experiences that we think you could enjoy.

From appearing in the acknoledgements credits, having the digital copy of the poster, the original soundtrack, to exclusively watching the documentary online. Also for people who prefer to experience the creative process firsthand, you could participate in pre- and post-production meetings. Finally, adapted to the needs of the topic discussed, we have designed the possibility of attending 2 Gestalt therapy workshops(in spanish) that could help interpersonal relationships, especially doctor-patient.

What will we use your contributions for?

The first objective: €8,500; will be used to finance the various costs of hiring equipment and production conditions, insurance, etc. that assure us that the documentary strictly complies with the legal requirements.

Everything we get extra will expand the distribution possibilities of the short documentary film, which will surely have a lot of international potential to publicize our situation in other countries.
MMS distribution will be in charge of the distribution strategy, whose ambition will be highly determined by the final figure.

FAQ

  • Is it exclusive saying "frontline professionals"?

    We want to clarify that when we talk about "frontline professionals", although this documentary deals only with the medical profession, we are aware and we acknowlesge that medical professionals are one of other professionals who are in the frontline health system; and that, without the interdisciplinary teamwork of nurses, nurses assistants, social workers, tecnicians, administratives, etc., good health managament and care cannot be provided.
