killer cure

Lindalee Tracey, Canada / France, 2005
Synopsis

The antibiotic miracle is ending. World-wide resistance grows. Hospital infections increase. Superbugs attack. In the former Soviet republic of Georgia, scientists fight back with bacteriophage. And a desperate American patient travels to Tbilisi in hopes that a killer virus will cure him. Following the personal journey of this desperate man in search of a medical miracle in the former Soviet Union - where a long-forgotten Canadian discovery continues to heal those with little chance to live - this documentary reveals the catastrophic consequences of reckless misuse of antibiotics and investigates the strange story of the bacteriophage.
