Natalie Boulton and Josh Biggs' ME film "Voices from the Shadows" available for live streaming, free of charge online from now until 10/30/11
I would just like to ask all those from "research/scientific community" to please watch Natalie Boulton and Josh Biggs' ME film "Voices from the Shadows".
It is available for live streaming, free of charge online from now until 10/30/11. The film is just over an hour and I think it may a useful tool to understanding where the patients' mistrust of the medical establishment/scientific community is coming from and why their is such allegiance to people who "get it" like Dr.'s Deckoff-Jones and Mickovitz.
I would also hope it would help to explain why the tone of Abbie's blog is so offensive and that it would encourage researchers, scientists, doctors, commentators, etc., to take some responsibility for building trust with the patient community (rather than being dismissive), particularly if they are so certain that they can provide answers.
The film can be accessed for live streaming at http://mubi.com/festivals/mill-valley
It will not be downloadable. -MSD
