Under Our Skin, an Academy Award-shortlisted documentary and 20-time winner at international film festivals, investigates one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time. A shocking, real-life thriller, this festival hit exposes the controversy surrounding Lyme disease, revealing deep fault lines in our medical research, health care and insurance systems. Following the stories of patients fighting for their lives, the documentary reveals a natural world out of balance and a human nature all too willing to put profits before patients.
The film is being organized by local volunteers and shown in conjunction with May’s National Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Proceeds from the film’s ticket sales will benefit the California Association for Lyme Disease.
Tickets are $12 each and can be purchased at the Lobero Theatre box office, 33 E. Canon Perdido, or click here to buy tickets online.
