FAUCI | National Geographic Documentary Films

Dubbed "America's Doctor" by The New Yorker, Dr. Fauci has become the country's most unlikely cultural icon, with his signature blend of scientific acumen, candor, courage and integrity in the face of COVID-19. He's been affectionately spoofed by Oscar winner Brad Pitt and memorialized by Fauci fans who've put his face on everything from coffee mugs to candles. He's a tireless and effective communicator who has captured hearts and minds across the nation and around the world for his willingness to speak truth to power during an unprecedented pandemic. 

But less is known about the journey that led him to where he is today. The film weaves together Fauci's current role and his previous efforts to combat everything from AIDS to Ebola as a public official in seven administrations. What emerges is an intimate portrait of a smart, funny and engaging man who is the ultimate public servant and American hero. D: John Hoffman and Janet Tobias, US, 2021
