What are vaccines, how do they work, how were they born, if we take too many or few, if they can have side effects, what relationship do they have with the great theme of immigration, if we are properly informed or if false news hang over them and how is it done? They can avoid: they are just some of the themes that nine men of science face, in as many playful and eclectic “lessons,” in this documentary that does not intend to open a debate on the issue of vaccines, if anything, it intends to close it definitively, putting science at the center. Science, if it is really science, it is not dogmatic, it is constantly questioned, it is aware of its own fallibility; but precisely for this reason, it is trained to expose, with humility and authority, every dogmatism that is opposed to it.
“I return to being a pharmacist, here, in this film, born from the suggestion of Giampaolo Donzelli, to take a stand in favor of the widest possible vaccination, and in favor of the authority of science, of competence, of study, of research, of experimentation.”
