Best Experimental/Animation SCINEMA 2017 Computational geneticist Pardis Sabeti and disease ecologist Lina Moses bring us to the front line of the 2013-15 Ebola epidemic and explain the science behind how this event became the largest Ebola outbreak in history.

This fascinating video gives insight into epidemic outbreaks of disease, and touches on themes such as natural selection, genetics, careers in science, how technology impacts on human life with regards to health issues, and how our understanding of health issues has changed over time. Well worth the 7-minute run time.
