When I first heard about the screening, I thought I'd check out the documentary film Resistance to be more educated about antibiotic Resistance. The event took place in North Hollywood at the Laemmle Theatre on December 10th, 2015.

The film was introduced by Ernie Parks, one of the producers of the film. The film was very informative.
I think that regular people just like me who may not be aware of all types of medical problems resulting from resistance to antibiotics would benefit from learning from this film.

The film interwove people's stories with the facts to give the viewers a balanced look at antibiotic resistance.
Prior to the film, I knew less than 1%, probably that it was not good for livestock that we consume to be on antibiotics for no reason.  The film gives an indepth look at how overuse of antibiotics in livestock and by humans(when prescribed) can effect humans.  

The filmmaker Michael Graziano, actor-activist Ed Begley Jr, chief medical office LAC-USC Brad Spellberg, and activist & co-founder of the Niles Project Carol Moss were part of the post-screening panel discussion moderated by Valentina Valentini.

There was a reception at the Fat Dog sponsored by Applegate company after the screening. Meat items served had not been treated by antibiotics.
