Film producers Del Bigtree and Polly Tommey will talk to the audience following a screening of their controversial film “Vaxxed: From Cover Up to Catastrophe” at 7:35 p.m. Wednesday at the Emagine Novi 18.

The film investigates how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention destroyed data that linked the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella) to autism.

“Vaxxed” recently made news for being pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival. A review of the film in the Star-Telegram, a Texas media outlet, said “Vaxxed” doesn’t present the medical community’s side of the story, but it isn’t quite “anti-vaccination.”
