Off Label uses the personal stories of human guinea pigs – those who test and take pharmaceutical drugs – as a launching pad for a deeper exploration into the ways these drugs are marketed, sold, consumed, and ultimately treated with the same reverence as a religious belief in the United States. The film incorporates a multitude of visual styles and presents deeply personal stories set against a uniquely American landscape haunted by the ever-present commercialization of medicine and personal identity. An official selection at the Tribeca, Hot Docs, Sheffield Doc/Fest and the San Francisco International Film Festival, Off Label was directed by Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher and produced by Anish Savjani and Vincent Savino.
