Ricky Barnes has been working in film and TV for over 30 years. During much of that career, he has worked as a Director of Photography. As a Writer/Director his previous feature film, The Enquirers, was the Northwest Spotlight Feature at the Seattle International Film Festival.
He decided to product the film, 50 Cents A Dose, which is about one father revisits the medical study in which his oldest daughter participated: the study on Thimerosal (a mercury based medical product). What begins as a lighthearted rumination on parenthood, ends as a discovery of scandal, and perhaps – a nation in denial.
Ricky and I talk about the CDC whistleblower, Dr. Brian Hooker, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, #Vaxxed, what led him to create this film.
