Check out this eye-opening and shocking documentary film, “The Syndrome” co-created by award-winning investigative journalist Susan Goldsmith and filmmaker Meryl Goldsmith. After watching the film, you won’t look at the medical profession and the criminal justice system the same way again.
Highlights from Matt Coker at the OC Weekly who reviewed “The Syndrome” documentary when it was screened in California in April 2015: A 1998 cover package by reporter Susan Goldsmith broke the story that one of LA’s most prestigious law firms was using private in-house investigators to illegally spy on litigation opponents by obtaining their confidential health and financial records. She went on to pour years of research into shaken baby syndrome, discovering that it was a creation of junk science and many were being unjustly prosecuted for it around the country.
Her reporting is the basis of a documentary “The Syndrome” she collaborated on with her cousin, Meryl Goldsmith
While Susan Goldsmith appears as a talking head in the picture, the real stars are the doctors, defendants, scientists and legal scholars who pierce gaping holes into shaken baby syndrome allegations. Included is Audrey Edmunds, a mother of three and prisoner of 11 years for killing a baby she never harmed.
And then there are the physicians who have turned speaking in courts, at conferences and from their own national center on shaken baby syndrome into gold–despite there being no peer-reviewed science to justify the syndrome’s existence.
