In the center of the recent Tribeca Film Festival scandal surrounding his film VAXXED: From Cover-up to Controversy stands Andrew Wakefield, discredited and stripped of his medical license for his infamous study suggesting a link between the MMR vaccine, bowel disease, and autism. THE PATHOLOGICAL OPTIMIST takes us into the inner sanctum of Wakefield and his family from 2011- 2016 as he fights for his day in court in a little known defamation case against the British Medical Journal. Wakefield attempts to clear his name as the media-appointed Father of the Anti-vaccine movement. Director Miranda Bailey weaves a delicate portrait of a man who is THE PATHOLOGICAL OPTIMIST utilizing a never-before-seen, full access look at the man at the center of one of the biggest medical and media controversies of our times.
Popular folklore suggests that the people of North Korea were so successfully brainwashed that they believe that Kim Jong Un's father, when he was leader, beat Tiger Woods at a round of golf - including several 'hole-in-ones'. Whether the North Korean's fell for this story or not is hardly the point. The big questions are "Are you brainwashed?", "Why are you brainwashed?" and, "Who benefits from my brainwashing?".
It would surprise many to be told that the brainwashing inflicted on the West is far worse than that inflicted on the North Koreans. It can be very harmful to those unable to see the damage being done, and especially harmful to the career of anyone who dares to speak out.
The Pathological Optimist is one such story.
