Below the belt explores the common,
devastating disease that most people have
never heard of - endometriosis. Through the lens of four patients urgently searching for answers to mysterious symptoms, the film exposes widespread problems in our healthcare system that disproportionately affect women, and especially women of color who are less likely to be believed, diagnosed & effectively treated for menstrual health issues. From societal taboos and gender bias to uninformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, the film reveals how millions of women with endometriosis are effectively silenced.

Endometriosis (”endo”) affects 200 million
girls & women around the world - that’s at least 1
in 9 women. Even so, it takes an average of
8 doctors & 10 years to properly diagnose. During that time, many are often told wrongly by doctors that an array of ineffective drugs, pregnancy & hysterectomy are cures. Many are left infertile - nearly 50% of infertility cases are due to this disease.
OUR GOAL & THE RESULT
With this, we are driving a charitable donation and the proceeds will be used to support programs for patient awareness, the provision of medical care for underserved patients, and medical education in the Middle East. The projects we consider will align with these goals organized by MIS Academy and the producers of "Below the Belt".
We consider this project as a vital and key source of patient care and healthcare professional education.
By the end of the congress, the official gathered monetary donations will be published.
There will be a transparent report where our monetary and product donations will go and the efforts we support.
The Film team includes Executive Producers
Corinne Foxx & Mae Whitman and award winning editors Christopher Seward (Oscar Winner Farenheit 911, Sicko) & Mary Lampson (Oscar nominee Trouble the Water, Harlan Country USA).
