HILLEMAN – A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children

Best Documentary at the SCINEMA International Science Film Festival

If there’s any person that should be credited with saving millions of lives (and counting), it would be Dr. Maurice Hilleman. His work in vaccinology to combat devastating diseases that, in our modern world seem distant and even unbelievable, still has an impact today.

Medical History Pictures together with Paul Offit produced HILLEMAN – A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children, a feature-length documentary about the life and legacy of this legendary scientist. The animation you see in this film was done by XVIVO and was an incredible project to be part of. To learn more about the film and Hilleman’s legacy, please visit www.VaccineMakers.org
