Janson Closes Deals for The Greater Good

by Janson Media Admin on January 21, 2015

in Business News

Janson Media announced today that its film The Greater Good (1 x 74′) has been licensed to the U.S. digital platform, Hulu, and the Russian internet broadcaster, Russia Today (RT).  RT broadcast a one-hour version (1 x 52′) of the film.  The original long version  is available on Hulu.  The Greater Good is a feature documentary that looks behind the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate in America today. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.

Our society has reached a crossroads on vaccines. Americans are asking questions about safety, but are confused about where to turn for answers. Government agencies are charged with implementing sound policies that will keep vaccination rates high and disease rates low. But to accomplish this noble goal, does the government go too far in shielding the public from possible side effects? Mandatory vaccination is a health policy unique to America, and for a growing number of her citizens, it is an unsettling mandate, one at odds with the nation’s founding principles of individual rights and freedoms. The Greater Good shifts the debate from the controversial, vaccine-induced-autism theory and instead engages with human stories from within a troubled system.
