Emergence – Under Our Skin 2 Trailer

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and we’re marking the occasion with a giant DVD sale to help spread awareness about a disease that continues to cause untold suffering worldwide. UNDER OUR SKIN and it’s sequel EMERGENCE have brought unprecedented visibility to the Lyme crisis literally with millions of viewings. From Netflix & Amazon to PBS to Capital Hill to a theater near you, the films have helped change the way the public views the disease and the people suffering from it.

For the month of May, we’re offering a two-for-one BOGO Special: For every Home Use DVD you purchase, we’ll throw-in another for free. Buy one get one free; buy three get three free, and so on. You can use these free DVDs to educate friends, family and physicians – the tab’s on us! Don’t miss out on this opportunity!  http://www.underourskin.com/store  Click here to order.


Films are among the best tools for grassroots education and activism. Since it’s release, UNDER OUR SKIN has screened in thousands of communities by individuals like you or organizations like yours. Our Community Use DVD Set includes both UNDER OUR SKIN & EMERGENCE and is licensed for free public screenings of up to 100 people. We also have other licenses available for large scale screenings or fundraisers. For any screening we can provide you with organizational and promotional materials, as well as advertise your event on the UNDER OUR SKIN Facebook page. With almost 37,000 likes, we’re the largest Lyme-related social-media community online! Go to the Screenings page of the UNDER OUR SKIN website and fill out our “Host a Screening” form.
Now, on to some BIG NEWS! We’ve joined forces with Tugg, a web-platform that helps individuals and groups set-up customized movie screenings, to show our films in theaters across the country! This is a fantastic way to raise awareness and bring visibility beyond your Lyme community, where it might attract more movie goers and media attention. These events can also be used as organizational or individual fundraisers, and include panel discussions or even a filmmaker Q&A. Plus, it’s EASY! There are only four steps to hosting a theatrical screening:

1.) Fill out the Event Request Form and select the theater, date, and time.
2.) After theater approval, your Event Page can begin reserving tickets.
3.) Share the event with your network and confirm your screening by selling enough tickets before the deadline.
4.) Sit back and enjoy the show!

As always, feel free to let us know how we can better partner with you to make the greatest impact together. Speaking of together, below you’ll find some Lyme Awareness Month events across the the country. This May, may we educate, pontificate and activate…!
