Jennifer Brea is a Harvard PhD student about to marry the love of her life when suddenly her body starts failing her. Hoping to shed light on her strange symptoms, Brea grabs a camera and films the darkest moments as she is derailed by M.E. (commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a mysterious illness some still believe is “all in your head.” Brea’s wonderfully honest portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around a disease that affects millions of people. Unrest is a vulnerable and eloquent personal documentary that is sure to hit closer to home than many could imagine.
"Brilliant" - The Daily Telegraph
“Riveting...equal parts medical mystery, science lesson, political advocacy primer and even a love story.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“Remarkably intimate, deeply edifying and a stirring call to action…an existential exploration of the meaning of life.” — LA Times
“An intimate essay” that even feels like “a suspenseful thriller” and “packs a significant emotional punch.” — The Spectator
