Health researchers all over the world are working to keep one step ahead in the fight against the invisible threat from viruses and epidemics.
In the 21st century we are all connected – even through illness. Population growth, urbanisation, climate change and global wanderlust are all jointly responsible for increasing the risk that known diseases spread and mutate – and that yet unknown diseases appear. In fact, the flu is the one disease that is most feared by experts. But health research is mankind's own immune system, and all over the world, experts are working on being one step ahead of the invisible threat, which can come from both viruses, laboratory mistakes or – at worst – systematic bioterror. And if there is something the Ebola epidemic in 2014 showed us, it was that we were not prepared. Join us on the forefront of the global fight against epidemics, when 'Unseen Enemy' examines the enormous power of tiny viruses and presents the audience with the people who are trying to make a difference and keep entire nations healthy. A film with global perspectives.
