The Invisible Enemy
Weaponized SmallpoxStreaming Video - 2009
Smallpox has officially been eradicated worldwide - but the destruction of lab cultures in government-sponsored biowar facilities was never monitored. A blend of dramatization and documentary, this program considers the weaponization and deployment of smallpox - or, by extension, any lethal virus - from preexisting stockpiles and by laboratory manufacture from mail order genetic material and online genome maps. The culturing of as-yet-unnamed animal viruses that are potentially capable of jumping the animal/human genetic boundary is also addressed. A harrowing what-if scenario of bioterror combined with cutting-edge virology.
