abstract
The thesis project described in this abstract fulfills the requirements for a master of arts in liberal studies. The project consists of two required components: an original creation and a contextual analysis to inform the creation. The purpose of the original creation, a documentary short film, is twofold: to gain introductory experience in film production as well as to lay the groundwork for a more professional subsequent film. The documentary short introduces the world of medical research trials as well as the challenging relationship between medical academia and pharmaceutical companies. The filmmaker's point of view is that drug manufacturers can potentially influence scientific findings to increase profit.
