Ramblings: Indie Lens Pop-Up Series: The Providers

Looking for something FREEFUN, and EDUCATIONAL to do tomorrow night in Downtown Concord, NH?

Red River Theatres is showing a free viewing of another Indie Len’s Pop-Up Series called The Providers. All you have to do is go to their website, select the movie, grab your tickets, and be there for the start at 6pm. If you snag a popcorn, drink, or other treat while you are there, it helps the theatre continue to bring exciting new movies and events to our area.

P.S The cookies are delicious!

If you are hearing-impaired, don’t fret. For the first time ever Red River will have an ASL interpreter during the film, along with on-screen captions, so you too can come out and enjoy!

You will also want to stick around after the movie for a discussion with industry professionals who will discuss the film but will also answer questions.

More about the movie:

“Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three healthcare providers in northern New Mexico. Amidst personal struggles that at times 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.”


What is the Pop-Up Series?

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a film series that Red River Theatres hosts for FREE in partnership with NHPBS to bring people together for preview screenings, in advanced of air dates on NHPBS, and allows for community-driven conversations.

***This season the films will be shown with captions, and the conversation will include an American Sign Language interpreter, made possible through a grant from ITVS.***


Who will be at the post-film discussion?

Hopefully you, along with the following:

  • The Moderator will be BJ Entwisle, MD, a recently retired geriatric medicine specialist in Concord, NH for 35 years. She graduated from Boston University School Of Medicine in 1984.
  • Alisa Druzba, Director of the State Office of Rural Health for the past 13 years, who will speak to State level programs as well as regional and national efforts. Druzba’s office also administers the programs to encourage healthcare providers to work in rural areas.
  • Dr. Stephen Elgert, a Family Medicine specialist practicing in Bedford, actively involved for ten years in MAT (medically assisted treatment for addiction) at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, both in treating patients and in expanding treatment capacity.
  • Dr. Philip Baker, currently in his third and final year of family medicine residency training at the NH Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency here in Concord. His clinical interest is in full spectrum care of underserved populations including obstetrics and medically assisted treatment for substance use disorders. After residency he plans to return to his home country of Canada so his perspective on healthcare is greatly influenced by the social model currently in place up there.
