More information on the Celiac Project
The inspiration for the Celiac Project came after the director, Michael Frolichstein, struggled with a series of "mystery aliments" before finally being diagnosed with celiac disease at age 40. Michael was shocked to learn that this auto-immune disease, which affects 1% of the US population, is 83% undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. His journey to meet others who had suffered, as well as get answers from experts, led him to uncover more mysteries within his own family. The documentary ultimately explores what we can do individually and as a society to advance the conversation and raise awareness about the disease.
