Unrest (12A)

F Rated Film
Wednesday 17th January 2018 - Thursday 18th January 2018

Brea’s documentary Unrest, won a prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Struck with a debilitating illness and unable even to sit in a wheelchair after a bout of high fever, filmmaker Jennifer Brea took to her camera to make sense of what she was going through. With many questions left unanswered by medical experts, Brea turned to the internet and found not only that her condition has a name; myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), but along with it a supportive community of sufferers. Unrest details Brea’s fight to overcome the disabling disease commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Tanya Marlow, Katie van Santen and Jon Marlow will be running a Q&A in the bar after the Thursday screening, about the film, and their experiences of living with ME. Please feel free to join them.
