THIS IS AN 18+ LICENSED EVENT.
SCREENING HOSTED BY:
When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?
With a fantastic cast that includes James Roday, Robin Weigert, Khandi Alexander, and the great Danny Glover, PUSHING DEAD is one of the year’s biggest crowd-pleasers.
