Why Would Anyone Do This To A 5 Year Old Child?

Release Date: November 24, 2011
Genre: Documentary
About: Human Radiation Lab Experimentation
Narrated By: Dennis Haysbert
Directed By: Brett Leonard
Written By: Wilbert Smith (edited by Ryan Sheffer)
Produced By: Smith Leonard Productions, LLP

Awards: Directors Choice Award for socially relavent subject, International Film Festival of Nashville and currently nominated for Best Documentary at the Pan African Film Festival of Los Angeles.

Synopsis: Vertus Hardiman hid a shocking secret under a wig and beanie for over 80 years. When he was 5 years old, he was used in a radiation experiment conducted by a county hospital in Indiana during 1927. As a result, he lived his life with a hole in his head. Further, he was one of ten children used in the same radiation experiment. This secret leads two friends (Vertus and Wilbert Smith) on a journey of the heart that speaks to the great resilience of the human spirit, even in the face of terrible suffering caused by the ignorance and hatred of others. The following video clip might be upsetting for some viewers.

Various forms of human experimentation was widely used in the early to mid-twentieth century in the United States. People, especially Blacks, were constantly being used by science to serve as human guinea pigs without their knowledge or consent. In order to shine a light on what happened to Vertus and nine other children living in a small Black Indiana town, he returns to the place where the radiation experiments were conducted. Follow this amazing life-journey of an exceptional human being who in spite of a life-altering calamity allows himself to live life without bitterness.

Please help spread the word about this movie... this is a story that must be told!
