Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix have teamed up with Cowspiracy filmmaker Keegan Kuhn and BAFTA Award-winning director Alex Lockwood, to executive produce, The End of Medicine, a new feature-length documentary about zoonotic diseases, which threaten the health and lives of the entire human population.

The doc began production in October 2019, months before Covid-19 was making headlines around the world and touches on the disease, which is when germs and viruses that spread between human and non-human animals. It includes interviews with some of the world’s leading scientists whose research and testimonies conclude that the public health emergency we are presently facing was inevitable and is far from over.

“We hope that The End of Medicine is an eye-opening call to action and ignites a spark of willingness to change our habits,” say Mara and Phoenix in a joint statement. “The science is irrefutable. Modern animal agriculture will continue to make us sick if we don’t radically change our patterns of consumption.”
