The Greater Good

Friday, November 18 - Thursday, November 24, 2011

As the number of routine—and sometimes required—vaccinations greatly increases, so do fears about the unintended consequences. THE GREATER GOOD gives a thoughtful analysis to this controversy, weaving together personal stories, in-depth reporting and lively graphics in a style reminiscent of Waiting for Superman. Essential viewing for parents, the film explores the debates over autism, mercury, HPV and more, while taking a close look at how Big Pharma influences government, media and even scientific research.
