BOSTON AREA SCREENING OF “UNREST”
Sundance and GlobeDocs (Boston Globe) Award-Winning Documentary,
and now an Oscar contender
A Love Story, a Medical Mystery and a Social Justice Fight for Health Equality
UNREST, a documentary by Jennifer Brea, was screened on Nov. 12, 2017, at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts.
This event raises awareness about a neuroimmune disease largely forgotten by the medical community: ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), also known as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). There are 28,000 Massachusetts residents, 1 to 2.5 million Americans and 17-20 million around the globe disabled by ME — many homebound and bedridden. Approximately 75% of people with ME are women.
This video includes the event’s opening talk and post-film panel. (Note: This video does not include the actual film UNREST, which is available on Amazon and iTunes.) The panel includes a scientific researcher, a medical professional, a women’s health advocate and ME advocates. Our panel moderator is a senior correspondent and host at WBUR, Boston’s NPR station.
Outcomes: Approximately 358 attended this event, and many were healthcare professionals. At the event, we shared a ground-breaking statement of support for ME patients, issued by the entire 11 member Massachusetts Congressional Delegation.
