Asheville, NC (PRWEB) September 8, 2006
An award-winning documentary filmmaker whose current work-in-progress is Under Our Skin, The Untold Story of Lyme Disease, discusses his new film with researchers at the Lyme Disease Research Database (LDRD). A trailer of the film was recently released. The series features Lyme-literate physicians, health practitioners and others speaking about the prevention, diagnoses and treatment of Lyme Disease (LD).
Andy Abrahams Wilson talks about making the film and the reasons he chose Lyme as the subject of a documentary. A friend was sick with what appeared to be a "mystery illness," says Wilson, and doctors were unable to give her a diagnosis. "Her symptoms were very bizarre. She was having neurological problems."
LDRD listeners learn about the latest in cutting edge information about Lyme directly from experts literate in the disease. The LDRD interview series is available in audio on the site, and transcriptions of the interviews are provided also. Viewers of the powerful new trailer of the film Under Our Skin, The Untold Story of Lyme Disease, may recognize their own stories in one of the hundred-plus stories told by the sufferers themselves.
Wilson is one many professionals interested in finding out why LD, which is an epidemic in the U.S., is largely being ignored by the medical community. His company, Open Eye Pictures, interviewed hundreds of Lyme sufferers in preparation for the documentary. He says their stories all share a common theme of misdiagnoses.
"I was shocked to find that no documentary has been made about Lyme disease, at least one that is capable of reaching a national audience," said Wilson, who is currently seeking funding that will enable Open Eye Pictures to complete the film.
