Picturing Pandemics: Reporting Public Health Issues via Documentaries


28.06.2017 - 13:00 to 14:10


IT University - Auditorium 1


Science documentaries are an effective way to reflect what happens in environments foreign to the viewers. This also applies to the scientific communities. In this session part of the documentary Unseen Enemies by Janet Tobias will be screened.

Unseen Enemies gives insight into the work of medical professionals, researchers, governments and communicators during outbreaks of epidemic diseases. The film will open a panel debate about how to document health risks and how researchers see journalists’ and filmmakers’ roles in helping the public understand the importance of medical research. 

Session sponsored by Johnson & Johnson
