Hotly debated for decades, the question of whether or not vaccines are associated with a sharp rise in autism has divided parents, physicians and scientists around the globe.
“Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe” tackles this highly contentious topic through interviews with a range of experts in the field, along with parents who feel their children have been injured by vaccines. However, the main focus of the film concerns a CDC whistleblower who claims the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention destroyed documents regarding a study on the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and its association with autism. Considered the most controversial documentary in America, the film attracted significant media attention when it was “de-selected” from the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. For many, it’s a clear case of censorship.
