What’s Up, Doc? is a one-day documentary film festival event with guest speakers to educate and enlighten people who may be questioning the new normal. Truth in an Age of Propaganda Film Festival will feature the film “Uninformed Consent”, the most powerful documentary of the Covid era. Also playing will be the film “Anecdotal”, a compassionate exploration of the nuanced vaccine debate. You will also hear from local BC doctors and healthcare professionals during the What’s Up, Doc? Speakers Panel with Dr. Anna Kindy; Dr. Stephen Malthouse; Dr. Daniel Nagase, MD; Dr. York Hsiang, Vascular Surgeon & Professor at UBC; Michelle Riddle, BSc, OT, & Founder of Global Alliance for Our Children’s Future; and Lisa Bernard, RN, Advocate for bodily autonomy.
