CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
4 - 6 JUNE
To mark the 70th anniversary of the birth of the NHS, acclaimed poet Owen Sheers takes us on a journey that weaves the extraordinary story of the birthing of Nye Bevan's vision of free healthcare for all people with personal stories of the NHS in British society today. Based on scores of interviews with NHS workers - ranging from brain surgeons to cleaners - The NHS: To Provide All People charts the emotional and philosophical map of what defines the NHS and the personal experiences at the heart of the service, and recognises its achievements and the challenges it faces. From first breath to last breath, the film poem journeys through the joy, pain, triumph and loss that unites us all in our experiences of health and sickness, birth and death, regardless of race, gender or wealth.
