The documentary films of social and environmental injustice that artist Susan Swartz has contributed to including Academy Award winners Born into Brothels and The Cove

Under Our Skin

Directed by Andy Abrahams Wilson, this a powerful documentary about the science, the politics and the personal stories of Lyme disease, from which Swartz herself suffers chronically. Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and their livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of the healthcare system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients. Semifinalist for 2010 Academy Awards, Finalist for Audience Choice Award at 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
