Big Bucks, Big Pharma: Marketing Disease and Pushing Drugs (2006)

5.0 ·
3

Big Bucks, Big Pharma pulls back the curtain on the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry to expose the insidious ways that illness is used, manipulated, and in some instances created, for capital gain. Focusing on the industry's marketing practices, media scholars and health professionals help viewers understand the ways in which direct-to-consumer (DTC) pharmaceutical advertising glamorizes and normalizes the use of prescription medication, and works in tandem with promotion to doctors. Ultimately, the film challenges us to ask important questions about the consequences of relying on a for-profit industry for our health and well-being.
