Global Health Film Festival 2017: Resistance

Using microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights, Resistance clarifies the problem of antibiotic resistance, how we got to this point, and what we can do to turn the tide

Antibiotics were first mass-produced in the 1940s and their ability to fight and kill bacteria revolutionized medicine and profoundly impacted everything from agriculture to war.

After less than 80 years however, these miracle drugs are failing. Resistant infections kill hundreds of thousands of people around the world each year and there are now dozens of ‘superbugs’, each with its own challenges and costs. 

How did this happen? 

Please note: entrance to this event is available to Global Health Film Festival passholders only.
