ANTHRAX WAR is an investigative documentary about the 2001 U.S. Anthrax Attacks, a trail of dead scientists and the dark secrets of germ war research.

The film begins in the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks when anthrax-laced letters, mailed to media offices in New York and to the U.S. Senate in Washington, spread fear and panic across the United States and beyond. Filmmaker Bob Coen probes troubling questions still surrounding the FBIs investigation of the 21st Centurys first act of biological terrorism.

The search for answers takes him from the United States to the United Kingdom, then to the edge of Siberia and Southern Africa and leads into an underworld in which leading scientists working with germs die under mysterious circumstances. The growing list includes Bruce Ivins, who the FBI claims was the only person behind the U.S. anthrax murders; Dr. David Kelly, the head of UK bio-defense; and Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, an important Soviet defector.

The filmmaker penetrates what he comes to call the biological warfare mafia and uncovers the development of terrifying new weapons genetically mutated germs, some with the ability to target specific ethnic groups. In a rare interview, the man known as Doctor Death, who headed South Africas apartheid-era biological warfare program that developed germs aimed at the countrys black population, reveals that he received help from the U.S. and U.K. The filmmaker also learns that some of these germs may be for sale on the black market today.

ANTHRAX WAR goes on to reveal how the 2001 Anthrax Attacks have spawned a $60 billion dollar Bio-defense boom in which biological weapons research is now being conducted, with little oversight, by corporations and private labs in possible violation of international treaties and U.S. law. The film underscores how fear of terrorism combined with the lure of extraordinary profits may be leading to a global germ war arms race that could be hurtling the planet toward catastrophe.

This is an important and frightening film, about how Google, Amazon, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin – and IMDb? – harvest our personal information and onsell it to the highest bidder, or to the government. How we don’t read that wodge of text in capitals comprising “Terms and conditions” before we click “Accept” – nobody could, it would take a month per year for everything we sign. But even when that text is brief and written in plain English, it gives those corporations unprecedented power over our personal information – including the right to change the rules without telling us, to increase their power without limit and without asking again, and to keep it forever, even after we have “deleted” it.
