'UNREST' Comes to PBS !

Now ranking #1, at WBUR's "Here and Now" -

'Unrest' Film Sheds Light On 'Invisible' Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - / - AUDIO

This aired yesterday. Look for THE DOCUMENTARY! on PBS coming up on MONDAY!!!

Unrest by Jennifer Brea (Monday, January 8, 9:00-10:30 p.m Central Time.)

Jennifer Brea was studying for her PhD when, months before her wedding, she became progressively ill and finally bedridden. When told by her doctor it was “all in her head,” her response was to start filming other sufferers from her bed, gradually deploying crews globally to document the patients that medicine forgot. Unrest gives voice to the millions suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) — commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome — telling the stories of people struggling to make a life of meaning when everything changes.
