Primum Non Nocere - First Do No Harm' found itself inside the formation of another documentary. Starting with an entirely different project, the original concept 'Beijing Goes Bloodless', was short-listed for the Co-Production Challenge, at Mipdoc, in 2008.
The movie unfolds as world renowned experts share the latest scientific evidence - debunking claims that blood transfusions always save lives.
Millions of patients are now in danger from previously unknown risks associated with blood transfusions; for example the effects of DNA and chromosome transfers.
What are the long term implications of receiving other peoples' DNA or receiving chromosomes from the opposite sex after a blood transfusion? The film explores the controversial history of blood transfusions and the greatest obstacle facing global healthcare; the reflex rejection of new knowledge, because it contradicts entrenched paradigms.
