A limited scope documentary about Chicago's Michael Reese Hospital
   By Arlen Parsa

In 2008, Chicago-based documentary filmmaker Arlen Parsa sought to explore the story of the Michael Reese Hospital's impending closure, and gained exclusive filming access to the hospital in its final days. While news cameras were stationed outside, Parsa was on the inside gathering a more candid, personal version of a historic hospital's closure.
