Documentary Showcases N.C. Organization’s Enlarged Scope of Care

acoustics-of-care-600px.jpg

The sounds that fill hospital rooms can take on a discordant tone, as life-sustaining equipment beeps, hisses and blares. Chapel Hill nonprofit DooR to DooR breaks through the noise, bringing to health care settings the sounds of a different healing sort, as documented in the new film “The Acoustics of Care.”With this documentary, UNC Charlotte researcher Margaret Quinlan and colleagues profile DooR to DooR, founded by Joy Javits to bring performing, literary and visual artists to health care settings. The film shows how the arts can introduce more soothing sounds and sights into health care settings to facilitate healing.
