Unrest Screening And Discusssion
Senior correspondent and host Deborah Becker will moderate a post-film panel discussion with director Jennifer Brea following a screening of Unrest, her Sundance Film Fest and Boston Globe (GlobeDocs) award-winning documentary.
When Harvard PhD student Jennifer Brea is struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden, she sets out on a virtual journey to document her story as she fights a disease that medicine forgot. This film is about ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a disease that disables 28,000 in Massachusetts and 1 to 2.5 million in the U.S., 75% of whom are women. Watch the film trailer.
