What is "The Idiot Cycle"? It's an exposée on the links between the world's six largest chemical companies, cancer, and cancer treatment drugs (produced by, you guessed it!, those same six chemical companies). Check out the trailer below, and see the film's website or the facebook event for more information. Come to the screening, made possible by JPS films, to explore these topics further!
