Winner of the Best Documentary at the Los Angeles and Hamptons International Film Festivals, CODE BLACK gives unprecedented access to America’s busiest Emergency Department and a tense, doctor’s-eye view right into the heart of the healthcare debate. Amidst real life-or-death situations, this thrilling documentary follows a dedicated team of charismatic young doctors-in-training as they wrestle with their ideals and the realities of saving lives in an overburdened system. Their training ground and source of inspiration is the birthplace of Emergency Medicine, Los Angeles County Hospital’s legendary trauma bay.
