When scientists in the mid-20th century developed the means to mass-produce antibiotics it was hailed as a medical miracle. Only now are we realizing the potentially catastrophic implications of this innovation. The question: have we reached a point where we must save antibiotics in order to save ourselves? The new documentary Resistance seeks to answer this question using a blend of interviews, archival material, animation, and vérité footage shot across the United States and other parts of the globe. In the process the film also reveals the past, present and possible futures of one of the greatest health threats humanity has ever faced. The film contends that antibiotics are a unique public resource that must be managed sensibly and protected from the misuse that is transforming them from a good into a problem. Accordingly, a variety of perspectives on this vital issue are included with the goal of fostering cooperation among stakeholders to achieve proper management and protection of these precious drugs.

One of the first feature documentaries to address gay life in America, it’s a work of advocacy itself, bringing Milk’s message of hope and equality to a wider audience. (more…)
