Event: The Greater Good documentary Portland Premiere
Location: Cinema 21- 616 NW 21st Ave., Portland, Oregon
Filmed partly in Portland, THE GREATER GOOD is a character-driven that explores the cultural intersections where parenting meets modern medicine and individual rights collide with politics. The film offers parents, doctors and policy makers a safe space to speak openly, actively listen and to learn from one another. Mixing verité footage, intimate interviews, 1950s-era government-produced movies and up-to-date TV news reporting, THE GREATER GOOD weaves together the stories of families whose lives have been forever changed by vaccination. This showing of the film will be a fundraising event for the film's community outreach program. After the film, there will be a panel discussion with director Kendall Nelson, Dr. John Green, an expert appearing in the film, Janelle Hall, Washington Coordinator of the National Vaccine Information Center, and MyLinda King, mother of a child with a vaccine injury who appears in the film.
