The Bleeding Edge
From the Academy Award-nominated filmmakers behind The Hunting Ground and The Invisible War, the new Netflix documentary The Bleeding Edge will take on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit-driven incentive that have put patients at risk daily. America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, and yet the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial. Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?
Peace is Loud is thrilled to join forces with The Bleeding Edge to design and execute a multi-faceted impact campaign which will build public awareness around this issue; educate doctors and health practitioners; and bolster the efforts of survivors and activists fighting for change. Peace is Loud will oversee strategic partnerships, social media and digital communications, the creation of action steps for audience engagement, and the production of an online hub with resources and educational materials for the general public and members of the medical industry.
From birth control implants to surgical mesh, CT scans, and joint replacement implants—an estimated one in ten people will be implanted with a medical device. We invite you to stand for the health of those closest to you, and join us in our call to put patients over profits.
