The film – Unrest (12A)

To coincide with this year’s ME Awareness Day on Sunday 12th May Pontio is very pleased to be able to screen Jennifer Brea’s Sundance award-winning documentary, Unrest.

Jennifer is twenty-eight years-old, working on her PhD at Harvard, and months away from marrying the love of her life when a mysterious fever leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her it’s “all in her head,” she picks up her camera as an act of defiance and brings us into a hidden world of millions that medicine abandoned.

Jennifer Brea’s wonderfully honest and humane portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around an illness that affects millions.

Unrest is a vulnerable and eloquent personal documentary that is sure to hit closer to home than many could imagine.
