Event Details

Join The Arts Council of Central Louisiana on Monday, October 16th at 7:00 PM for a screening of The Only Doctor.
This is the 2nd film in our 2023-2024 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers Series.
Tickets are $10 for adults and free for students. Tickets Available at the door.
About the film:The Only Doctor tells a contemporary story of rural healthcare in the United States as it centers on Dr. Karen Kinsell, who for nearly 20 years has been the only doctor in a Southwest Georgia county.

The film begins when Dr. Kinsell comes to the realization that she can no longer afford to full-time volunteer as the only doctor in rural Clay County, Georgia. But ever committed to her community, she looks to forge a partnership with a medical university in order to keep her clinic open. After several options, a possibility emerges and so does disappointment. Then the pandemic creates new challenges, but also opportunities and new decisions.

Director, Matthew Hashiguchi, will join us for the screening and for some discussion afterward.

Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts, a regional arts organization, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information about Southern Circuit please visit www.southarts.org/southerncircuit.
