The Battle To Beat Malaria to get European premiere

Impact Docs Awards hails The Battle To Beat Malaria!

We're thrilled to have been awarded an Impact Docs Award for Outstanding Achievement! With praise for the direction, storytelling, and access, it's fantastic to be back in a competition where we've previously had great success.

The full citation for Outstanding Achievement reads: "Gale's masterful direction brings forth a gripping documentary on the relentless battle against malaria - a global struggle marked by science's triumphs and human resilience. Amidst millions falling victim to this persistent scourge annually, the film transcends the narrative of vaccine development, delving into the emotional and personal journeys of the scientists driving progress. From cutting-edge labs in England to fieldwork in Africa, where researchers expose themselves to mosquito bites for data collection, the documentary immerses viewers in the high-stakes world of vaccine development. Gale captures the raw intensity of clinical trials and the profound impact on both the field of medicine and the lives of the scientists themselves. With a blend of information, emotion, and suspense, this epic narrative traces a path from despair to hope, offering a deeply immersive and compelling exploration of humanity's fight against one of its oldest foes."

We are also excited to announce that more people will be able to watch the film soon. A UK broadcast is likely in the first half of 2024, with continental Europe not far behind.
