Iambic Dream Films is proud to be a co-producer of “Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story” – A feature-length documentary following a wildlife TV star who has sacrificed both fame and wealth to bring free healthcare to ordinary Americans.
In his early thirties, Stan Brock co-starred on one of America’s most popular television shows, seen by 32,000,000 viewers every week. Today, decades later, he sleeps on a grass mat in the basement of an unheated building. He has no bank account, no house, no car, no possessions of any value. And he is living his dream. He is touching more lives with greater impact than ever before.
In 1985, a mid-life crisis led this wildlife TV star to sell everything he owned and create a medical charity to run relief missions into the developing world. Their motto was: ‘go wherever the need is greatest’. At the time, that meant the developing world, but these days, the challenge has changed. An organization founded to help people in India, Africa and South America, now finds itself throwing America a lifeline.
Stan never imagined he’d be distributing basic medical care to US citizens throughout Appalachia, California, Illinois, and, this coming November, in New York. His patients are America’s working poor; people with jobs and families, but without insurance.
“It’s very sad that the state of affairs requires us to provide this kind of care in the world’s richest country.” – Stan Brock
