About Eric Merola
I’m an internationally award-winning documentary filmmaker. Since 2008 I’ve directed and produced six documentaries. Five of which explore disruptive scientific technologies in the space of medical research.
I remain passionate about investigating fetal stem cell therapy. I began my research in fetal stem cells in 2014, releasing my 4th documentary, The God Cells: A Fetal Stem Cell Journey in 2017. In 2023 I released Ukraine Fetal Stem Cell Pioneers.
When it comes to medicine, I find that fetal stem cells are the most innovative (and disruptive) technology ever discovered in the medical research space.
Ukraine: Fetal Stem Cell Pioneers is my 6th feature documentary, released in May, 2023.
My 5th documentary, The Andorra Hustle, was released worldwide in English, Spanish, and Catalan—and received glowing reviews by The Guardian and The Boston Globe. It is now available to watch free on Vimeo and YouTube.
My first documentary, Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business remains an international success seen by tens of millions of people worldwide. This project was presented on Netflix, PBS, The Documentary Channel, and various international television outlets. The positive reception of the Burzynski story led me to produce its sequel, Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business, Part II
My third documentary, Second Opinion: Laetrile At Sloan-Kettering tells the story of Ralph W. Moss, PhD, who blew the whistle on the successful laetrile studies conducted for 5 years at Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City in the 1970s. This project received wide publicity including glowing reviews in The New York Times.
I’m also a painter and fine artist currently holding a residency at the 18th Street Studios in Santa Monica.
