The Health Museum presents Outbreak
The Health Museum will present a screening of Outbreak, the 1995 American medical disaster film based on Richard Preston's book The Hot Zone, starring Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland, and Patrick Dempsey.
The film focuses on an outbreak of Motaba, a fictional airborne virus based on Ebola. An infected Capuchin monkey is smuggled into the United States, and a sleepy California town is plunged into fear of an impending outbreak that threatens the country as a whole. Dustin Hoffman leads a group of American scientists who struggle to control the spread of the disease while the United States Army struggles to control the narrative and the threat.
