Man of the People by Dolores Díaz, directed by Jason Paul Smith
October 18 – November 17, 2018
Man of the People considers the incredible rise and fall of John Romulus Brinkley, an American “doctor” who grew to notoriety for selling a boost for male virility in the 1920s known as the “goat gland cure.” Bolstered to fame through his uncanny knack for radio, men sang Brinkley’s praises and women credited their children to his intervention, but one man – Dr. Morris Fishbein of the American Medical Association – dedicated his life to seeing Brinkley burn. A tale of two giants going head to head as a populace decides, Man of the People is a true story about what happens when most everyone believes they’re right.

Maxwell (30s-40s, male, person of color) Doctor, Fishbein’s associate at JAMA
