The ME/CFS and FM Association of NSW, together with Shark Island Productions, is delighted to invite you to a screening of the film UNREST!
Jennifer Brea is about to marry the love of her life when she’s struck down by a mysterious fever that leaves her so ill she cannot even stand. When doctors tell her “it’s all in her head,” she turns her camera on herself, and discovers a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome. Together, Jen and her new husband, Omar, must find a way to build a life and fight for a cure.
This award winning film is making waves internationally to change the way that Myalgic Encepahlomyelitis /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is regarded. It’s ‘Time for Unrest’
