Documentary The Parkland Doctors
#1
Last weekend I got an alert on Twitter that I was being followed by an account called The Parkland Doctors. Naturally this attracted my interest, and I saw on their bio that they were in the process of making a documentary movie. I watched their clip and the guy says he wanted to tell a story from purely the point of view of the doctors on duty at Parkland, as "it's never been done". Didn't "Parkland" do that?

Anyway, their story is that they had an investor who was going to pay for the whole thing, but he didn't come through with the cash. Who knows if he was "told" not to pony up, or he never intended to in the first place? They are asking for crowdsourcing to pay for the film to be finished.

I can't think what this would contain that hasn't already been covered in 50+ years of interviews with most of the medical staff.

Well, it's been close to a year since they announced their 60k+ fundraising attempt. I wonder who backed out? Tom Hanks, perhaps?

The clips seemed OK, well-filmed, good audio, too. First time I heard of this. Thanks for sharing, Mr. White.
