Mike Wallach is the founder of Paradigm Shift Pictures and is the director and co-producer, with Diarra Leslie, of its film series, The Viral Delusion, which has received extraordinary early reviews. Dr. John Bevan-Smith called the series “Immensely important and beautifully made.” Dr. Vinnie Costa said it’s “Amazing. Should be translated into every language in the world,” and Dr. Sam Bailey explains it is “incredibly important and absolutely incredible. A Masterpiece!”


Mike is a graduate of Cornell University who holds a Master’s degree in international affairs from Columbia University. Mike became a Presidential Management Fellow with the State Department as a Middle East analyst. His reports were delivered directly to the White House, the Pentagon and the National Security Council. Frustrated with the constant misuse of his work, he left the government to pursue his dream of filmmaking. 


His first feature film “The Bay” was helmed by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (Wag The Dog, Good Morning Vietnam) and distributed globally by Lionsgate Pictures. The Viral Delusion is his first documentary.





The doctors, scientists and journalists featured in this film examine in detail the scientific papers that were used to justify the pandemic, and what they find is shattering. In this shocking, five-part, seven-hour documentary series, they explode every major claim, from the "isolation" of the virus to its so-called genetic sequencing, from the discovery of how to "test" for SARS-CoV2 to the emergence of "variants" that in reality exist only on a computer. Their point: that the so-called SARS-CoV2 virus exists only as a mental construct whose existence in the real world has been disproven by the science itself.


They then go back through history to reveal how the birth and growth of virology has led to massive misunderstanding and misdiagnosis of disease - putting the pandemic in a whole new context better understood not as settled science, but the tragic culmination of misunderstood biology by the growing cult of virology, built on pseudo-science, to which much of the rest of the medical profession defers without understanding or examination, and the tragic consequences.


In 2019, the virologists took center stage, and for the first time on film, their methods, miscues and tragedy they have wrought are put under the spotlight, revealing the extraordinary leaps of fantasy buried in their methodology, the contradictions quietly acknowledged in their papers, their desperate effort to change language to justify their findings, the obvious incongruence of their conclusions and the extraordinary stakes for our entire society in whether we continue to blindly follow their lead into a full-scale war against nature itself.
