A Cure for Fear


Location: Bartos Screening Room

New York premiere with Lana Wilson in person
Presented by 

Dir. Lana Wilson. 2018, 56 mins. (four 14-min episodes.) Neuroscientist Dr. Merel Kindt has discovered a cure for phobias using common medication. It is a brief but intense exposure to the patient’s fear, followed by taking a single pill. Twenty-four hours later, the fear is gone. From animal phobias to PTSD, the potential impact is both profound and dazzlingly complex. In this new series that debuts on on October 2, award-winning filmmaker Lana Wilson (After Tiller, The Departure) goes inside Dr. Kindt’s radical treatments as she explores the ethically treacherous grounds of curing our most human ailment.
