Bed Stuy: Do or Die

In a compelling look at the city of Bedford-Stuyvesant, the incredible documentary Bed Stuy: Do or Die illuminates the reality of medical assistance on a volunteer basis. The film crew follows the Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps through the streets of the once gang run city, giving audiences a look at the brave men and women who give their time to help others.

During the 80’s, the city of Bed-Stuy was so overrun with gang violence that ambulance response times could take up to an hour, leaving many people without medical assistance. One brave individual named James ‘Rocky’ Robinson took it upon himself to change this, reaching out to gang members and drug users themselves to change their own lives. The result was an amazing program that changed the city of Bed Stuy forever. This documentary offers an incredible look at what can happen when one person elicits change.
