Unrest is a Sundance award winning medical documentary film, by Jennifer Brea who lives with M.E. Unrest is a global story about an International community of people living with a serious, life altering illness, millions suffering invisibly and left at the margins of medicine and science.
Jennifer Brea is an active Harvard student when she’s struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her “it’s all in her head,” she turns her camera on herself and her community as she looks for answers and fights for a cure.
Often confined by her illness to the private space of her bed, Jen is moved to connect with others around the globe. Utilising Skype and social media, she unlocks a forgotten community and speaks to researchers in the field.
Jennifer Brea’s wonderfully honest portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around an illness that affects millions of people.
