The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room Storytelling Project is a collection of short videos from the Waiting Room documentary project, which is a feature-length documentary film that chronicles a day in the life of a hospital emergency room in Oakland, CA. The collection holds approximately sixty 2-5 minute videos, and is sortable by emotions (e.g., courage, faith, fear, frustration) and issues (e.g., access to care, chronic disease, language barriers, violence). The stories are stored on Vimeo, and the project’s web site describes a set of ambitious possibilities to distribute the stories, including a mobile app and an interactive platform in the waiting room of the hospital that is the setting for the feature-length documentary.
