Event: Tick Days - Documentary Screening and Discussion

Thursday July 12, 2018
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM


Larry Dapsis wakes up in the morning thinking about ticks. Dapsis is a county entomologist. He’s one part tick detective, one part tick evangelist. And he’s at ground zero of a persistent health crisis of tick bites on Cape Cod. 
It’s not just about Lyme disease anymore. Tick bites cause other serious diseases. Dapsis and his scientific partners have recently found a new virus in Cape Cod ticks that is potentially life threatening. And an aggressive new tick, Lone Star, has become established on Cape Cod. Dapsis sees his mission – protecting Cape Codders and visitors from ticks – as hand to hand combat. “You do not want to lose a single fight.” 

Co-directed by Marnie Crawford Samuelson & Shane Hofeldt with an original score by Kyle Oppenheimer.
Tick Days has screened at Provincetown International Film Festival and Woods Hole Film Festival and at a dozen libraries across the Cape and region. Run time 18 min.

A discussion of tick borne diseases will follow the screening, with Tamara Bedard, Community Health Manager at Nashoba Associated Boards of Health.
