Join L.V. Anderson for an evening devoted to superbugs with the screening and discussion of the film Resistance. This film traces the history of mass-produced antibiotics from when they were first introduced in the 1940s and looks at the impact that these powerful drugs have had over the past 70 years on everything from agriculture to the armed forces to resistant infections, which sicken 2 million Americans each year.

Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Landmark Sunshine Cinema, 143 East Houston St., New York City
Tickets: Free with an RSVP by May 20, and premium seating available to Slate Plus members.

Join us for a reception where you can meet the filmmakers at 6:30 p.m. followed by the screening, which will start at 7 p.m. After the film, stay for a lively and thoughtful panel discussion moderated by L.V. Anderson with filmmaker Michael Graziano; Dr. Martin Blaser, director of the NYU Human Microbiome Program; and Urvashi Rangan, executive director of the Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center.
