      Film: The Pathological Optimist

      A new film about Dr. Andrew Wakefield — the man behind the most highly controversial, intensely debated topics in modern medicine — will screen on December 4, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the Savoy Theater in Montpelier. Directed by Miranda Bailey, The Pathological Optimist is a character study of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, one of 13 co-authors of a study published in 1998 that was later retracted. Wakefield is often held up as the public example for anyone questioning the safety or necessity of the CDC mandatory school vaccine schedule. “Ultimately, of course, Wakefield himself is beside the point. The controversy over vaccinations will rage on and this cinematic portrait will merely be a footnote. But it proves a compelling one, however you may feel about the burning issue.” – Hollywood Reporter. Tickets are $10:

      This event includes a Skype Q&A with the director, Miranda Bailey.

      Cost: Payment required - 10.00
