ABOUT THE FILM:

Homeopathic medicine is one of the most widely used forms of alternative medicine on the planet but, despite it's popularity, it has come under a great deal of scrutiny in recent years and is now a favorite target for skeptics and debunkers. The controversy surrounding homeopathic medicine is founded in the belief that something so highly diluted cannot work without violating the laws of chemistry.

Magic Pills challenges viewers to decide for themselves by presenting new scientific discoveries and real world successes that challenge these assumptions. Many medical journals refuse to publish positive studies due to systemic bias, and the media can distort the truth by omitting information. The stakes are immense: if homeopathy works, it could transform the medical system and provide safe, affordable, and effective medicine. Is the truth being buried?

Journey with Ananda to Tanzania, where for the past 25 years a husband-and-wife duo of homeopathic doctors are using their skills to help thousands of HIV/AIDS patients in the most remote regions of the country. To Cuba, where she was the only person from outside the country given permission to tell the story of how homeopathic medicine given to millions of people stopped an epidemic in just a few weeks. To Kolkata, India, where the Banerji Clinic is having unparalleled success treating otherwise incurable brain tumors and other forms of cancer. To Mumbai, India where an MIT trained chemical engineer has discovered nanoparticles in the most dilute medicines. And finally to Switzerland, where a government-commissioned study led to by the public health-insurance program covering homeopathy.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER:

First-time filmmaker Ananda More is no stranger to storytelling. She has a background in theater, which allowed her to embrace writing, directing and acting. Then, inspired by her own cure from a lifetime with depression that hadn't responded to the standard treatments, Ananda decided to dedicate her life to homeopathy. She started practicing homeopathy in 2005, specializing in autism and immunity. Ananda is nowan owner of Riverdale Homeopathy, a homeopathic dispensary,bookstore and clinic. She is intimately connected with the homeopathic community around the world,and because of her involvement and her successes, she has been featured in The Walrus magazine and Toronto Life magazine. Her debut film, Magic Pills, not only sheds light on homeopathy, but also exposes the deliberate campaign by the medical and pharmaceutical companies to let far more expensive and more deleterious chemical-based treatments to prevail.
