2016 SHORT DOCUMENTARY WINNER
WORLD PREMIERE Bedside Manner focuses on standardized patients and the art of medicine. The film explores empathy and medical relationships through the practice of using medical actors to train student doctors. At the center of the film is the brilliant neurologist Dr. Alice Flaherty, who plays herself as a doctor, standardized patient and real patient. In addition to offering viewers a rare glimpse into the practice of training doctors, the uncanny medical simulations also reveal the tenuous boundary between the real and artificial. Bedside Manner invites reflections on empathy, medical relationships and personal medical histories.
