The Great fever( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1900, Major Walter Reed, Chief Surgeon of the U.S. Army, led a medical team to Cuba on a mission to investigate yellow fever. For more than two hundred years U.S. cities had experienced outbreaks of the disease, which killed an estimated 100,000 people in the 19th century alone. Shortly after Reed and his team arrived in Havana, they began testing the radical theories of a Cuban doctor, Carlos Finlay, who believed that mosquitoes spread yellow fever. This production documents the efforts of Reed's medical team to verify Finlay's theory. Eventually their discovery enabled the U.S. to successfully eradicate the disease among workers constructing the Panama Canal, making possible the completion of the strategic waterway. When yellow fever struck New Orleans in 1905, federal public health officials launched an aggressive mosquito-eradication campaign and successfully ended the epidemic. It was the last yellow fever outbreak in the United States, and the first major public health triumph of the 20th century

David Kinch of Manresa Restaurant is a world famous chef with a new project, aiming to create a two-star Michelin dining experience that reflects the Northern Californian culture he loves. Cynthia Sandberg of Love Apple Farms is a farmer who has dedicated her life to creating sustainably produced and impeccably nurtured ingredients. Will the collaboration between these two food geniuses create a world-class restaurant, or will their differences destroy both the farmer and the chef? The Farmer & The Chef follows this ambitious pair as they work together to make the perfect biodynamic meal. It delves into their shared passion for sustainable farming and quality product, showing their return to the old values of farm-grown produce while never shying away from the latest techniques. The film provides excellent examples of how farms and restaurants do business, following Cynthia's move from a 2-acre garden to an 80-acre farm with over 300 products to keep up with Chef Kinch as he increases his cooking ten-fold. The documentary details the in-depth interdependence of farms and restaurants, and, above all, emphasizes the respectful relationship between the chef, the farmer, and the land they both depend on for survival
