There is no “complete story arc” to the film because no one story included can resonate with a majority of Lyme sufferers. The kaleidoscope of symptoms and treatments shown make it clear that we are still early in the battle to understand this public health epidemic.

Hazel Raby and Michael Alderson are to be commended for sponsoring the Portland showing of Under Our Skin. For those turned away, and for those in the Midcoast, there is another chance coming up to view this important documentary: it is scheduled to be shown as part of the Camden International Film Festival at the Strand Theater in Rockland on Saturday, September 27, at 6:30 pm. If you are fortunate enough to not be grappling with Lyme now, this film could ground you with information you or a loved one could need in the near future.
