#595. Under Our Skin [2009]

Under Our Skin: The Untold Story of Lyme Disease (2008) is a documentary film about Lyme disease, focusing on the controversy surrounding "chronic" Lyme disease. The film was directed by Andy Abrahams Wilson, who became interested in the subject after his sister contracted Lyme disease. Under Our Skin has been shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Maine International Film Festival, the Silverdocs Film Festival, and the Mill Valley Film Festival. Variety noted that"it sides with those advocating unconventional treatments,[but]gives gatekeepers from Infectious Diseases of America [sic,actually Infectious Diseases Society of America]their say."

Synopsis : A dramatic tale of microbes, medicine and money, this eye-opening film investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians as they battle for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our health care system and its inability to cope with a silent terror under our skin.
