Oregon Premiere! Portland-based director Winslow Crane-Murdoch in attendance for a Q+A.
After years of living with mysterious symptoms, a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist are diagnosed with a disease said to not exist: Chronic Lyme disease. THE QUIET EPIDEMIC follows their search for answers, which lands them in the middle of a vicious medical debate. What begins as a patient story evolves into an investigation into the history of Lyme disease, dating back to its discovery in 1975. A paper trail of suppressed scientific research, and buried documents reveals why ticks—and the diseases they carry—have been allowed to quietly spread around the globe.
Masks are encouraged given the immune-compromised nature of some who may be in attendance.
