Last week, the LA Times reviewed THE GREATER GOOD, our new documentary on vaccines. As filmmakers, we truly appreciated their fair and open assessment of a very difficult and controversial subject. We took great pains to ensure that we had treated the subject of vaccines as well as all the film participants with respect and dignity so that we could create a safe and sane space for people to come together and discuss this very charged and very important topic. We hope THE GREATER GOOD will enable communities to have an informed and reasonable conversation about what we do and don't know about vaccines and will help all Americans to understand that everyone deserves the right to informed consent. Thank you LA Times for dealing with this film and this issue seriously and fairly. Read the LA Times review HERE.
THE GREATER GOOD looks behind the fear, hype and politics that polarize people into emotionally charged pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine camps with no room for middle ground. Exploring the cultural intersection where parenting meets modern medicine and individual rights collide with politics, our character driven documentary weaves together the stories of three families whose lives have been forever changed by vaccination. By reframing the vaccine debate and offering, for the first time, the opportunity to have a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program in America today, THE GEATER GOOD challenges viewers to think again.
