Fear is an innate emotion that exists to trigger the ‘fight or flight’ response. This ‘fight or flight’ mechanism is a means of ensuring our survival in a primitive and physically dangerous world.

A Virus Called Fear, is a thought-provoking short documentary by Ben Fama Jr., which explores the programming of fear, how it distorts our perception of the world; creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media, and makes us think in terms of ‘we’ versus ‘them’.
