A new documentary by Lindsay Keys & Winslow Crane-Murdoch
Streaming on Apple TV, Amazon, and iTunes beginning May 16th
Available on DVD beginning May 30th


After years of living with mysterious symptoms, a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist are diagnosed with a disease said to not exist: Chronic Lyme disease.

The Quiet Epidemic follows their search for answers, which lands them in the middle of a vicious medical debate. What begins as a patient story evolves into an investigation into the history of Lyme disease, dating back to its discovery in 1975. A paper trail of suppressed scientific research, and buried documents reveals why ticks – and the diseases they carry – have been allowed to quietly spread around the globe.

''Through its masterful storytelling, The Quiet Epidemic does what any good investigative doc should do – it informs, infuriates, breaks your heart, and fills you with hope.''
