The long-awaited sequel to

"Age of Aluminum"

The vaccination issue dominates the news – and causes heated debates among family and friends. Since key political and scientific figures have committed themselves to the idea that the only way out of the covid pandemic is to vaccinate the population, people have faced enormous pressure to get vaccinated: to keep their jobs or avoid being bullied in their daily lives. 

The mainstream lumps together “vaccination” and praises the great historical successes – but overlooks the fact that every vaccination works differently and has its own benefit-harm ratio. The mainstream lumps “vaccination” together and praises the great historical successes – but overlooks the fact that each vaccination works differently and has its own unique benefit-harm ratio. And this was already true in the times before COVID-19.

Bert Ehgartner undertakes an exciting research journey into the role of one of the most important ingredients of vaccinations, which was first added experimentally almost 100 years ago: the aluminum compounds . To this day, they are used in two-thirds of vaccinations without understanding their specific mechanism of action.

What is their actual purpose? And what role do aluminum additives play in the development of allergies and autoimmune diseases?


“UNDER THE SKIN”  tells the well-founded and authentic story of a new vaccination against cervical cancer, which is pushed to a global blockbuster via an aggressive marketing campaign. When rare – but serious – side effects occur in the vaccinated girls, all connections are denied until a Danish team of doctors collects dozens of cases and sends a safety warning to the European Medicines Agency (EMA).  

Thereupon, an exciting plot develops that exemplifies how a large corporation, with the help of “friendly” authorities, uses the historically acquired good image of vaccinations to make billions in profits.   more

Dirty tricks, outrageous profits, sick young women and the question: “Why do so many vaccines contain aluminum – and what is it doing under the skin?” The investigative documentary deals with a highly sensitive topic without serving the prejudices of those opposed to vaccination.

UNDER THE SKIN – What does aluminum do in vaccinations?

When the first vaccine against human papilloma viruses, the product “Gardasil,” is launched in 2006, there is great enthusiasm: the “first vaccination against cancer” promises “almost 100 percent” protection against cervical cancer. The health authorities approve the vaccination in record time and one of the inventors even receives the Nobel Prize. A massive advertising campaign is launched and almost all industrialized countries include the HPV vaccination in their vaccination schedules. The manufacturing company Merck earns billions.

But then the bad news starts to mount. Severe side effects occur in girls and young women. A Danish team of doctors investigates the symptoms and suspects an autoimmune background.

One detail seems particularly suspicious: a new, extra-strong aluminum compound was used in Gardasil. Was this ever tested for safety?

Secret documents emerge that show that the authorities are not fulfilling their control function, but are acting as business partners of the industry. . And the suspicion arises that the good image of vaccinations has been abused to launch a blockbuster worth billions.

Uniquely for a documentary film, a scientific study on sheep that has been running for over two years is followed live, so to speak: from the presentation at a congress – to the publication of the extremely interesting results.

Also exciting is a subplot that portrays a phenomenon in cats: These animals tend to develop malignant tumors at the vaccination site. Here, the industry has developed aluminum-free cat vaccines and since then these “vaccine-associated sarcomas” rarely occur.

So, if the will exists, it would be no problem to replace aluminum adjuvants with more compatible products. However, the corporations shy away from the high costs in this regard.

“UNDER THE SKIN” breaks the big taboo around the safety of vaccinations and opens a public discussion that is long overdue.

As a documentary filmmaker and author of numerous non-fiction books, Bert Ehgartner has been critical of the healthcare system for many years. His award-winning film “The Aluminum Files” led to a broad public debate in Europe about the health effects of using toxic aluminum additives in sensitive areas of life. More and more cosmetics companies began to market deodorants without aluminum. Numerous additives containing aluminum in food have been banned by the EU authorities. However, the fact that two thirds of vaccinations also contain aluminum has not been publicly discussed.

With this film, Bert Ehgartner wants to break a taboo and opens up a discussion about a topic that has been overdue for a long time. So that people are just as healthy after the vaccination as before.

Lothar Moll has been an entrepreneur for 40 years and works in the areas of intuitive management and intuitive leadership, as well as irrigation systems in large-scale projects in Africa. An important concern for him is education about the health effects of electromagnetic fields, especially from mobile phone technology.

“Nothing may be done that harms the children” is an important Indian law on life commitment that Lothar Moll adopted. His work at retirement age also focuses on the topic of vaccinations. With the realization of this film project, he would like to contribute to people gaining a comprehensive basis of information for their decisions in relation to their lives and the health of their children.


The project

The topic of vaccinations is a taboo topic in the media as well as among the juries that decide on film funding, and nobody wants to burn their fingers on it. Bert Ehgartner has been making documentaries for 20 years, which have won international awards and attracted great interest from TV stations and their audiences.
Nevertheless, all funding applications for “UNTER DIE HAUT” were rejected. TV editors also showed no interest or demanded so many concessions that this would not have been compatible with a critical film.

The only alternative was therefore to finance this film privately and to do the personal work unpaid.
Years of work went into this film. If you want to support the production, we thank you very much.

"Dirty Little Secret - The Aluminum File"

One of my adult daughters was recently invited to a friend’s birthday party. Sunday she called and asked me to pick her up. When I came, some of the young people were cooking, some were watching TV – a total of about eight friends who were left over from the party were “chilling”. I accepted the invitation to stay for dinner and sat down with them. more…

"The Covid vaccination is not a liquorice candy"

With the bold announcement that the teenagers and young people will now be vaccinated, a bow was apparently spanned. All around it hails criticism. And a series of unpleasant new findings on possible side effects of the Covid vaccines are not helping to ease the tension either. more…

In order to give an insight into what kind of reading you can expect from my book “Gute Vaccination – Bad Vaccination”, I bring here a perspective chapter on the tetanus vaccination. Its development dates back to the 20th century – and it is still one of the most popular vaccinations today. But is this good reputation justified? more…
