The directors of October Country (SUHRFF 2010) return with a timely, eye-opening exploration of the role that pharmaceuticals play in the social injustices of American healthcare. From human guinea pigs testing drugs for pay and behind-the-scenes marketers to victims of medical experiments and veterans battling for PTSD treatment, Off Label examines the medicated margins of American society through the powerful and moving stories of eight lives haunted by the commercialization of medicine. From these and other interwoven stories emerges a tragic, and at times bleakly comic, look at life, health, and faith in the Twilight Zone of American pharmaceuticals.

Introduction and Q&A with co-director Michael Palmieri.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided.
