Storyline

80 years ago antibiotics revolutionized medicine. Only now are we realizing the potentially catastrophic consequences of these miracle drugs. The question is: have we reached a point where we must save antibiotics to save ourselves? RESISTANCE uses interviews, archival material, and verite footage to untangle the web of factors behind the global crisis of antibiotic resistance. Experts and ordinary individuals who've faced resistance first hand reveal how our use of antibiotics has created profound challenges not only for hospitals, but for much of modern life - from our food supply to our personal health. With their help the film clarifies what's at stake, what's driving the problem and how we might turn the tide. Written by Anonymous

Well rounded treatment of the growing antibiotic resistance issue from both the medical and political aspects
13 August 2014 | by secretchimpSee all my reviews

The filmmaker interviews patients and surviving families of unfortunate victims as well as relevant scientists in the medical community, administrators in the federal government, and representatives from the agriculture and pharmaceutical industries to illustrate the complex details of this issue. Also interviewed are scientists, agri-business owners and government representatives from Denmark. The film includes a few well placed graphics to help illustrate cause and effect elements. It's apparent the filmmaker cares greatly to educate about the growing antibiotic resistance issue and, to his credit, he has crafted an unbiased, nuanced look at the problem from all sides, including some possible solutions.
