Eradicated from the world in 1977, smallpox re-emerged as a potential terrorist weapon at the end of the 20th century.  Its deliberate release in 2002 leads to the most devastating global plague ever known.

In Smallpox 2002, journalism, science and drama join forces for the most ambitious ‘future-proofing’ exercise ever.  The film has the look and feel of a classic historical documentary, except that it is about something that has not yet happened.  Smallpox 2002 explores global issues of today in a fresh and powerful new format.
