THE DOCUMENTARY:

After years of living with mysterious symptoms, a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist are diagnosed with a disease said to not exist: Chronic Lyme disease. The Quiet Epidemic follows their search for answers, which lands them in the middle of a vicious medical debate.

What begins as a patient story evolves into an investigation into the history of Lyme disease, dating back to its discovery in 1975. A paper trail of suppressed scientific research and buried documents reveal why ticks and the diseases they carry have been allowed to quietly spread around the globe.

Directed by Winslow Crane-Murdoch, Lindsay Keys (both of whom are Lyme disease patients). Run time is 102 mins | Rated TBC | Documentary
