In the ’80s, David Blech was dubbed the “King of Biotech” by the New York Times, a pioneer investor in a rapidly growing industry whose very touch (dubbed “The Blech Effect”) seemed to promise vast fortunes and success. But 30-something years later, Blech is $11 million in debt and awaiting a possible jail sentence, the “Blech Effect” taking on a dramatically different meaning. In David Greenwald‘s The Blech Effect documentary, the disgraced tech investor looks for a way to reverse his fortunes by developing a potential cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.
/Film has the exclusive first look at The Blech Effect trailer, along with key art for the documentary, which can be seen below.
