American Jen Brea was a Harvard Ph.D. student leading a seemingly charmed life until she was struck down by a mysterious fever that left her bedridden. Housebound, often bedridden, doctors were baffled by her symptoms but eventually she was diagnosed with ME, a devastating condition with no known cure or drug treatment.
As Brea sought answers for herself, and others, she decided to make a documentary which would reveal the reality of the daily lives of patients from around the globe, linking their stories together through powerful interviews and candid footage. The result is Unrest, a powerful no-holds-barred film which has won an award at the prestigious Sundance Festival and received warm praise from critics. Many within the ME community believe it will help pave the way to greater understanding of the illness.
