A Documentary by Donald Rayne Mitchell of Flourtown, PA


Film Synopsis:
Though he is responsible for more than half of the vaccines children receive today, Maurice R. Hilleman spent his life in relative obscurity. His work has impacted nearly every human on the planet and dramatically changed the shape of our world and has made it possible for us to forget the many devastating diseases he conquered. This luxury has caused some to question the need for vaccines altogether.

Now, through exclusive interviews with Dr. Hilleman and his peers, rich archival footage, and 3-D animations that illustrate the microscopic world, this biographical documentary puts a human face to vaccine science and reveals the character that drove this bold, complex, and heroic man.

On Screen/In Person is a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
