Film Screening: “Unseen Enemy”
To commemorate World Health Day on April 7 American Center Moscow invites you to a film showing “Unseen Enemy“, screened as part of 2018 Pest Fest organized by the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs (OES) in a partnership with the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival (JHWFF). Film series explore the threats vector-borne disease pose to people everywhere, as well as ways to address this growing problem.
Population growth, mass urbanization, deforestation, climate change and increased travel have dramatically increased the risk that familiar zoonotic diseases will spread and mutate, and new ones will emerge. Unseen Enemy examines this increased threat of pandemics in the 21st century, looking at the recent epidemics of Ebola, Influenza, and Zika. It not only looks at the danger we face but also at the important roles we can all play in the fight against pandemics. In the 21st century, we are all connected. And that connection is either incredibly dangerous or a powerful force for good. It is our choice which of those becomes true.
