Common infections and injuries that in the past have been easily treatable with antibiotics are becoming dangerous once again. Drug resistant infections are undermining modern medicine, killing 5,400 Canadians every year.


After the film, we’ll have a post-show Q&A with experts, including Dr David Patrick, Interim Executive Lead of the BC Centre for Disease Control, to continue the discussion and answer your questions. Join us to find out how our actions can keep antibiotics working and protect ourselves, our families, and our communities for generations.
