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.

Post-Film Panel with ACLU, UCASA, Juvenile Justice Services, and Salt Lake Peer Court

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis. A Netflix original documentary.

Post-film discussion with Dr. Jessica C. Brown, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology, Division of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Utah School of Medicine.

 
Twenty-eight-year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and her community – a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Unrest is, at its core, a love story.  How Jen and her new husband forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.
