Plot Synopsis

CNN FILMS is a series of acquired or commissioned documentary features curated by CNN executives -- Vinnie Malhotra, senior vice president of development and acquisitions for CNN Worldwide, and Amy Entelis, senior vice president of talent and content development -- which have their broadcast premieres on CNN, usually soon after their exhibitions in theaters. The first CNN FILMS documentary to be acquired was GIRL RISING, which inspired a global action campaign to promote girls' education called 10x10. The first CNN FILMS broadcast was ESCAPE FIRE: THE FIGHT TO RESCUE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE, a film that premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and reveals flaws in the notion that the healthcare delivered via America's patchwork of facilities, practitioners, and insurers offers good value for its outcomes.
