Documentary The Space Between looks at poverty and health care through the lives of four patients at a hospice in Kenya.

Amid America’s concerns, squabbles and public debates over health care, filmmakers Kimberly Nunez-North and Travis North are touring select cities with their documentary, The Space Between, looking at poverty and health care through the lives of four patients at a hospice in Kenya.

The Living Room hospice, with its mission to provide “dignity and quality of life to people in Kenya affected by HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses,” operates under the belief that everyone is worthy of care and dignity, a notion that’s gotten lost in America’s political vitriol.

On November 14 at 7 p.m., Downtown’s Inspire Theater and the Contemporary Arts Center will host a benefit screening of The Space Between at Inspire, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and the Living Room’s Juli McGowan Boit.
