Experts say we are “due” for a pandemic. When it happens, they tell us it will probably have a greater impact on humanity than anything else currently happening in the world.


Unseen Enemy, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Janet Tobias, shadows some of the world’s top pathogen hunters and scientists as they travel the globe to track outbreaks of some of the world’s greatest health threats, focusing on Ebola, Zika and Influenza. The film is an intense look at the increasing threat of emerging infectious diseases; there are some aspects that viewers may find disturbing.


This event is supported by Johnson & Johnson.


This event is geared toward healthcare professionals and the scientific community. Please note that this film may not be suitable for children.
