Tóxico - Epoca Films



The Toxic Bus Incident, inspired by a bizarre 2004 occurrence on a Vancouver bus, is infused with post-9-11 paranoia about the terrorist threat. A suburbanite woman gets on a bus in Richmond, and notices a dark-skinned man talking with the driver. When she and the other passenger begin to suffer from a mysterious sickness, her paranoia also has consequences for her family, even though it is finally diagnosed as “mass psychogenic illness.
