The Island Is Enchanted with You

Alexander Carver, Daniel Schmidt
La isla está Encantada con Ustedes
USA, Switzerland, Australia 2014 / 28’
experimental

Two American artists argue in this film that the modern mass production of medicine can trace its origins back to 16th-century colonialism. It was then that experiments with vaccines began, which, several centuries later, would develop into an industry that has saved the lives of millions of people.
