Thanks to the generous support of the donors, the Unrest team is offering FREE tickets to medical professionals, researchers, and anyone working in healthcare to select screenings of the Sundance award-winning film Unrest, playing in the California Bay Area this weekend. Invite your doctor, nurse, or favorite researcher and help us spread the word!
Jennifer Brea is an active Harvard PhD student about to marry the love of her life when suddenly her body starts failing her. Hoping to shed light on her strange symptoms, Jennifer grabs a camera and films the darkest moments unfolding before her eyes as she is derailed by M.E. (commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a mysterious illness some still believe is “all in your head.”
It’s an intimate, artful and unflinching look at severe chronic illness and ultimately, a study on love and compassion. It invites scientists to ask new questions and medical providers to reflect how they can best support patients and caregivers grappling with any lifelong illness for which there are no clear answers.
