Interested in joining the creation of a documentary? Passionate about science biology or medical anthropology?
'The Ill Plate' (working title) is a documentary that will assess clinical approaches and treatments for chronic diseases, particularly IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). In doing so, we will explore the use of alternative medicines, and attempt to understand the lack of integration of unconventional methods (mainly focusing on nutrition) within biomedicine.
It will question the state of medicine and treatments in a biomedical paradigm, giving a new perspective on nutrition and other alternative methods, opening up a discussion not only about illnesses but about general lifestyle. The challenge with this documentary is presenting a scientific debate/problem and addressing it in an entertaining and interesting way for all audiences.
This is why we need your help whether you are knowledgeable about medicine, or interested in filmmaking, or just have an opinion you want to share. We are looking for some help in the research, filming, as well as some general feedback.
