In this documentary short, we follow Jenn Gooch, from her folk-musical upbringing in Texas to her pursuit of conceptual art at Carnegie Mellon University. Gooch discusses her web-based community art project "One Cold Hand" that started in Pittsburgh and ended up catching the attention of USA Today and NPR. Despite her artistic successes, Gooch suffered bankruptcy caused by medical bills. "Everything Will Probably Be Fine" spotlights the struggles so many Americans face in the only industrialized country to reject universal health care.
This film is part of the Healthy Artists series (healthyartists.org), which blogs officially for Michael Moore. Other Healthy Artists projects include a recent exhibition with judges from the Criterion Collection, Warhol Museum, and Carnegie Museum of Art.
