Unrest (2017)

This poignant, feature-length documentary shines a light on the hidden epidemic that is Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Filmed partly on her cell phone and almost entirely from her sickbed, director Jen Brea breaks the mould and proves that anyone can be a filmmaker! In a truly human story, she documents the lives of forgotten patients, who after decades of maltreatment due to stigma and medical ignorance are rising up in a global movement for change.
