The Bleeding Edge

Spotlight Documentary

World Premiere

USA | 99 MINUTES | English |


Technological advances have been responsible for many groundbreaking developments in modern medicine. Countless individuals have seen their quality of life improve through research and development, from the advent of pacemakers to bionic limbs. But there is a dark side to the relentless pace of all this innovation. With The Bleeding Edge, Academy Award®-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering bring viewers a searing exposé of the medical device industry. The film follows the personal stories of those affected by medical technology gone wrong, giving voice to injured victims and uncovering frightening instances of corporate malpractice and the complex legal loopholes that have allowed them to go unpunished. It acts as a terrifying reminder that we are, indeed, living in the future, subjecting our bodies to everything from a seemingly innocuous sterilization device to a robotic surgeon that is the stuff of dystopian nightmares. These master documentarians have constructed a brilliant and eye-opening account that angers, enlightens, and calls audiences to action.
