Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.
If the so-called ‘global pandemic’ taught the world anything, it’s that the pharmaceutical industry exerts a huge amount of influence on health policy. Many of these firms develop highly profitable drugs with public money, while others have been caught covering up serious side effects from their questionable products. Now the fight against Covid-19 is further fueling the greed of pharmaceutical companies. Does the industry’s influence threaten public health systems? They’re richer and more powerful than ever. In some cases, they can even call the shots on governmental health policies. Is this drug cartel’s lobby also threatening the integrity of our democratic systems? This documentary is the result of more than a year of research, and brings together patients, whistleblowers, lawyers, doctors and politicians, as well as representatives of the industry. It shows the shocking practices of Big Pharma giants Sanofi, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Gilead, and more. Each of these corrupt firms is vying to develop the next ‘miracle treatment’, and more often than not – paid for with public money. Watch:
