Golden Starfish Award Winner: Documentary Feature

Code Black

About the Film

“C-Booth,” the trauma bay at the Los Angeles County Hospital, was the first, the toughest, and the best training ground for ER doctors in the country. In 2008, the County Hospital moved from its historic structure to a modern facility, catapulting the medical staff into an institutional identity crisis. CODE BLACK follows a group of young doctors as they grapple with the divide between their idealistic expectations and the realities of a heavily bureaucratic system. Director Ryan McGarry—a full-time resident doctor at County while making this film—poses the question: can they change the system?

About the Director

Ryan McGarry, M.D. is an assistant professor of emergency medicine and filmmaker at The Weill Medical College of Cornell University/New York Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City and director of the feature length documentary CODE BLACK. The film is a first-person reflection of McGarry’s own training at the Los Angeles County General Hospital, one of the birthplaces of emergency room medicine. McGarry spent four years in production on CODE BLACK while simultaneously working the 24/7 schedule of a young doctor in training -- an especially sleepless approach to first-time filmmaking. McGarry studied English at The Pennsylvania State University and received his medical degree at The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
