In 2016, then Dr. Andrew Wakefield, author of "Callous Disregard", (with the forward by Jenny McCarthy), directed the documentary film Vaxxed:From Coverup to Catastrophe. The film reports "an appalling cover-up committed by the CDC, our government agency/Center for Disease Control, charged with protecting the health of American citizens. Staffers deleted evidence showing the long-suspected link between the triple live MMR measles vaccine and autism. This alarming deception has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime. By 2030, 80% of all boys could have autism or Aspergers Syndrome--be "on the spectrum" as the community of exasperated parents calls it.
Skeptical??? Worth noting: The CDC already covered up the AIDS virus for a decade till it jumped from gays to Ryan White. Then Lyme Disease. And let's not forget the Tuskegee Airmen, our US Army secretly gave them venereal disease, and studied them for decades!
VAXXED is controversial.
Open your ears--before you open up your kids' veins.
At least consider spacing out your vaccines.
The film was withdrawn from the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. Local New York festival sponsors had threatened to stop their financial support. Wakefield called this action CENSORSHIP.
After the festival, (when the sponsors' money had prevented the viewing), the festival's founder, Robert DeNiro, who has a child with autism, said on NBC's TODAY program, "I think the movie is something that people should see."

|Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Q&A following VAXXED documentary, this Fri. Sat. only, at 5:10pm and 8:q5 pm shows at Glenwood Arts, 95th & Metcalf. Tix in advance: fineartsgroup.com|
Former British doctor Andrew Wakefield, plus the director plus a mom of an autistic child will answer questions...Fri and Sat., 5:10 pm and 8:15 pm June 10 and 11 only.
Over 613 tickets have already been purchased for this weekend--more than any other film every shown at the Glenwood Arts since it opened in 1982.
Just please don't be one of those ninnies who threatens the owners, including Brian Mossman, saying "If you dare show that film, I'm never coming to your theatre again!" Right, and you're moving to Canada if Trump is elected. This is America. Land of the First Amendment, not just the Second.
According to Brian Mossman, co-owner, and President of KIFF, the Kansas International Film Festival (Nov. 4-10), "To date, VAXXED has aired without incident at 25 theatres across the country. It was banned by the Tribeca Film Festival, plus one independent theatre in Houston. We will show this film for one week only...Fri. June 10 - Thurs. June 16. It will not be held over. I urge protesters to keep an open mind...and come ask questions. This is what documentaries and film festivals like KIFF are all about."
For the record: Here's what the opposition said (per Wiki):
Dr Ian Lipkin, professor of epidemiology and director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, writing in the Wall Street Journal, said: "If “Vaxxed” had been submitted as science fiction, it would merit attention for its story line, character development and dialogue. But as a documentary it misrepresents what science knows about autism, undermines public confidence in the safety and efficacy of vaccines, and attacks the integrity of legitimate scientists and public-health officials."
