Gravitas Ventures to release director/editor Pi Ware's powerful new documentary SKIN DEEP: THE BATTLE OVER MORGELLONS globally on VOD/Digital on March 31


Gravitas Ventures Goes “Skin Deep” With Groundbreaking New Documentary

Gravitas Ventures Will Release Filmmaker Pi Ware’s Eye-Opening Documentary Debut To On VOD/Digital & DVD For Audiences Around the Globe

Director/Editor Pi Ware's ("Solitude," “The Act”) powerful new documentary “Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons,” takes a deep diveapproach into the heated controversy surrounding Morgellons disease, a skin condition that most of the medical industry considers delusional.

This investigative independent film has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, and will make its global VOD/Digital & DVD release across platforms everywhere on March 31.

“Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons,”explores the controversy surrounding Morgellons--a disease where fibers grow from sufferers' skin, but a disease that the medical industry considers "all in the patient's head."

The film brings to light the heated debate as to who is delusional—the patients who believe or the doctors who deny-- and whether medical treatment for Morgellons should be antibiotics or anti-psychotics.

Joining director/editor Pi Ware on this film are editor Tom Putnam (“Burn,” “Marwencol”); cinematographers Sam Price-Waldman (“There Is No Place for You Here,” “Wolf Mountain”), and PJ Raval (“Call Her Ganda,” “Trouble the Water”); composer Andrew Gross (“Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny,” “Bring It On: Fight To The Finish”); producers Levon Mergian (“Searching,” “Avarice”), Patrick Belton  (“True Blood,” “Some Guy Who Kills People”), Gary Leva (“Fog City Mavericks,” “A Legacy of Filmmakers: The Early Years of American Zeotrope”), Laura Stoddard(“Before the Fire,” “Beyond the Bolex”) & Ware; and executive producers Denise James and Jerry James.

“Skin Deep sheds a light on a very controversial subject matter in the medical community, while simultaneously informing and entertaining its audience,” said Brett Rogalsky, Acquisitions Coordinator at Gravitas Ventures.

Some doctors claim that Morgellons is a rare form of Lyme Disease in which fibers grow from the skin of victims.  

Other doctors claim that Morgellons is nothing but a delusion.

“Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons” uncovers the controversy behind the patients who suffer and the physicians who treat them. 
“This film has been a revelation for me personally as a filmmaker, and I’m looking forward to the important conversations it will generate with audiences,” director Pi Ware said.
The documentary follows subjects on both sides of the debate: a Texas nurse who suffers from the disease, and a skeptical dermatologist who asserts "there are no bad doctors."

The film investigates new research that claims the fibers are protein-based filaments created by the body, explores historical patterns of medical arrogance, and exposes the fatal flaws in the 2012 Morgellons study by the CDC.

“Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons” climaxes in a showdown at the Morgellons Conference in Austin, Texas, where the skeptical dermatologist presents his controversial opinions, and where bridges between doctors and patients will either be built... or burned.

Donaldson + Callif negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers with Brett Rogalsky, on behalf of Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company.
