Co-Director's Origin Story
Our journey as co-directors began in an unlikely place. In 2015, each of us was forced to move home with our families in upstate New York—too ill to sustain our careers and navigate city-life. Upon learning we were both filmmakers with Lyme, a nurse practitioner suggested she connect us. Lindsay wrote Winslow a note, which the nurse handed to him the following day. Thrust into the middle of this controversial medical mystery, we decided to use our cameras to understand the disease that had upended our lives.
Seven years later, The Quiet Epidemic is the result. We’ve come to know Lyme as a deeply complex illness that has yet to be fully understood. According to the CDC, an estimated 500,000 people are infected with Lyme each year, and 10-20% of them remain sick after antibiotic treatment. Even still, Lyme is often dismissed by the medical establishment. We hope our film can be the catalyst needed to awaken the public to this threat, and re-engage the medical and scientific communities on finding answers for a disease that is as close as our own backyard.
