A documentary short by Sarah Frank.
Music by Noisola and Mary Timony.
Betty Brassell has spent nearly every day of her retirement - rain or shine - protesting in the streets of New York City, her walker currently emblazoned with "Arrest Cheney." But when an injury sidelines her from a busy schedule of protests and vigils, Betty, 78, is homebound and finds herself wondering how much longer she will be able to take it to the streets. "In Bed with a Mosquito" is an intimate portrait of activism and aging in New York City.
