“I’m not anti-vaccine. I want safe vaccines”
Discussing the ultimate decision to pull the film – which presents the case for a link between autism and vaccines – De Niro alongside festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal held firm that he still wanted viewers to see the movie, despite the fact it will no longer run at the festival.
“I think the movie is something that people should see. There was a backlash which I haven’t fully explored, and I will, but I didn’t want it to start affecting the festival in ways I couldn’t see.
“But definitely there’s something to that movie, and there’s another movie called Trace Amounts.
“And these movies… There’s a lot of information about things that are happening with the CDC, the pharmaceutical companies… there’s a lot of things that are not said.
“I, as a parent of a child who has autism, am concerned. And I want to know the truth.
“And I’m not anti-vaccine; I want safe vaccines.
De Niro goes on to say he may possibly become part of the vaccine-autism discussion following the film’s fallout and after coming out publicly regarding his 18-year-old son’s disorder.
“The thing is if they shut it down… there’s no reason to… If you’re scientists, let’s see… let’s hear. Everybody doesn’t seem to want to hear much about it; It’s shut down,” the actor says before telling the Today Show hosts that “You guys are the ones [that should be] investigating, do the investigating.”
