Opening at The Ross on Friday, October 22, FAUCI isn't the cure for the common bio-doc, but it offers an entertaining and edifying overview of a life largely spent in public service. “FAUCI” is at its best when it draws parallels between the pandemics that define Dr. Fauci's career. It vexes when it leans on straightforward biography. –Lisa Kennedy, The New York Times Where the filmmakers' approach sets itself apart... is in juxtaposing the bookending health catastrophes of Fauci's career as an especially illuminating lens through which to examine his drive, decisions and personality. –Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times Regardless of your political leanings or affiliations, “FAUCI” is an education on what civil service looks like. And Dr. Anthony Fauci leads the pack. --Ronda Racha Penrice, TheWra FAUCI is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, October 22 through Thursday, November 4. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated FAUCI PG-13 (Some Strong Language|Thematic Material|Some Suggestive Material). With his signature blend of scientific acumen, candor and integrity, Dr. Anthony Fauci became America's most unlikely cultural icon during COVID-19. A world-renowned infectious disease specialist and the longest-serving public health leader in Washington, D.C., he has valiantly overseen the U.S. response to 50 years' worth of epidemics, including HIV/AIDS, SARS and Ebola. FAUCI is an unprecedented portrait of one of our most vital public servants, whose work saved millions while he faced threats from anonymous adversaries. Directed by Emmy winners John Hoffman (The Weight of the Nation, Sleepless in America) and Janet Tobias (Unseen Enemy), the film is executive produced by Academy Award winner Dan Cogan (Icarus) and two-time Academy Award nominee Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?, The Farm: Angola, USA). The documentary features insights from President George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Bono, former U.S. Department of Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Burwell, former national security advisor Susan Rice, National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins, former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Tom Frieden and key AIDS activists, plus Dr. Fauci's family, friends and former patients.
