The highly anticipated documentary, “Below the Belt,” will be screened in Vancouver on Wednesday, April 19th.

The film follows the personal and inspiring stories of four patients urgently searching for answers to mysterious symptoms and exposes widespread problems in our healthcare systems.

Through the lens of endometriosis, a disease that affects 1 in 9 women, the film shows how women are often dismissed, discounted & disbelieved. From societal taboos and gender bias to ineffective drugs and surgeries, women are erroneously told that pregnancy and hysterectomy are cures. Nearly 50% of infertility cases are due to endometriosis and almost all are preventable. This film reveals how millions are effectively silenced and how, by fighting back, they can improve healthcare for everyone.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A panel with several specialists:

“I have to confess, as an endometriosis surgeon spending all my working hours listening to endometriosis
patients and hearing their stories, I didn’t expect to learn anything new from a movie on endometriosis. I
was wrong. ‘Below the Belt’ is a movie for everyone. Not just endometriosis patients or people around
them. Not just GPs [general practitioners], not just policymakers. Everyone.”
