Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.

Episode 3: Throughout history, the concept of the ‘pandemic’ has been deeply rooted in culture and society, with many stories handed down from generation to generation. But are all these legends described accurately. What about Smallpox? How about ihe Spanish Flu of 1918? The Black Plague? Go back, back, back in time to examine the claims, and counter-claims, as to what truly caused all of these deadly epidemics. Are the rats of Europe innocent? Turns out they have to be – and in that discovery, we see how the superstitions in history as well as the present day, have clouded the eyes of “science” so as to avoid the most obvious of insights about many of these diseases. This will be a challenging film for anyone who holds deep, almost religious beliefs in the mythology of virology. Interviews include: Dr. Andrew Kaufman, MD; Dr. Thomas Cowan, Dawn Lester and David Parker. Watch:
