Resistance: A Film About Antibiotics

Are we at war with the bacteria that live in and on our bodies, or do we need their help? A new documentary film called Resistance looks at that question.

With touching personal stories, insightful expert comments, and fun snippets of old-style public service announcements, filmmaker Michael Graziano helps us to see that using antibiotics to kill our bacterial inhabitants should be a practice used incredibly sparingly.

Here’s a preview of the film below, and my favorite quote from it. Check it out!

“Our challenge is not to defeat them; our challenge is to learn to live in balance with them.” – Resistance
