Just dropping in to let you know that Unrest, the independent documentary made from bed by ME/CFS patient Jennifer Brea, is now available for rent on iTunes Australia. If you’re after a belated Christmas present, it would mean a lot to me if you’d consider giving it a watch.

You can read more about Unrest in my film review for The AIMN, or my previous post on the topic.

 

Unrest is available on iTunes Australia for $6.99AUD or purchase it for $18.99AUD. See the Unrest website for a wider range of international viewing options, including DVD and Blu-Ray orders.

Her speech, “What happens when you have a disease doctors can’t diagnose”, was the first of its kind to address ME/CFS. If you haven’t already, I would highly recommend you watch the whole video – Jen is an engaging speaker, and in 17 short minutes, she covers nearly every issue facing ME/CFS sufferers today.

However, I know that not everyone has the time in the day to watch a 17-minute video, and many ME/CFS patients cannot watch video or listen to speech at all.
