THE QUIET EPIDEMIC @ The Hot Docs Festival
By AJ Lam
The “Quiet Epidemic”is the tragic story of those inflicted by chronic Lyme disease for whom the sluggish medical establishment has been slow to acknowledge and treat unlike those infected by more known diseases such as HIV and COVID, for which intense government and medical attention have been made.
THE QUIET EPIDEMIC results from their seven-year journey to expose the truth about this illness which strikes over 500,000 people each year in the US alone and many more globally.
The award-winning production team includes Co-Directors Lindsay Keys and Winslow Crane-Murdoch and Producers Chris Hegedus (The War Room), and Daria Lombroso (Most Likely To Succeed); Editor Mark Harrison (The Lion’s Share) and Supervising Editor Doug Blush (Icarus, 20 Feet From Stardom). This is Lindsay Keys’ and Winslow Crane-Murdoch’s feature film debut. A robust social impact campaign will accompany the film’s release and include grassroots screenings, social media engagement, and political advocacy. The film team is calling on the global medical, scientific, and political communities to join forces and find much-needed and long-overdue answers.
