Through Film in the Community, films are screened throughout the year, free of charge, at various locations around Colorado Springs. Join us this month, in partnership with the Colorado Tick-Borne Disease Awareness Association, to watch THE QUIET EPIDEMIC.
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.
