Valencia, CA - In a compelling blend of intense drama and thought-provoking storytelling, "Patient" takes audiences on a gripping journey through the harrowing aftermath of a mass shooting, all within the walls of a well-prepared emergency room. The cinematic docu-follow presentation, employing both documentary-style footage and point-of-view (P.O.V.) camera angles, provides an emotional perspective from every character, from doctors and nurses to the enigmatic "victim" at the center of the crisis. The secrecy surrounding the patient's identity builds to a startling and poignant cinematic reveal that will leave viewers questioning the true nature of the "life" being saved.
Directed by Brandon Mathis, "Patient" tackles a pressing issue that has plagued America for far too long. With gun-related deaths reaching alarming levels, including 690 mass shootings and 705 fatalities in 2021, the urgency to address this crisis cannot be overstated. Notably, gun deaths among children and teens have spiked by 50% in just two years, with over 25,198 lives lost due to gun violence as of August 1, 2023. The film aims to shed light on the powerful lobbying efforts perpetuating this violence, offering a glimpse into the world of those fighting to keep firearms on the streets.
