‘The Bleeding Edge’ Trailer: ‘The Hunting Ground’ and ‘The Invisible War’ Directors Take on America’s Health Care System

Written by on July 19, 2018 


After investigating sexual assault on college campuses with The Hunting Ground and in the military with The Invisible War, directors Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering are turning their eye on America’s health care system and specifically the medical device industry with The Bleeding Age. Ahead of a release on Netflix next week, they’ve debuted the first trailer, which sets up the harrowing impact of this $400 billion industry on patients.


“Watch enough documentaries, and you’ll find yourself having trouble getting out of bed in the morning. You’ll certainly think twice before undergoing a medical procedure, especially on the heels of Kirby Dick’s documentary about the hazards of so-called “innovative” medical devices. Chronicling the unnecessary pain and suffering of patients caused by complications of devices and procedures that received little or no testing, The Bleeding Edge is a terrifying eye-opener,” THR said in their review.

See the trailer and poster below.

America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial. In THE BLEEDING EDGE, Academy Award® nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND) turn their sights on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily. Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?


Bleeding Edge hits Netflix on July 27.
