  • Nov 18, 2017, 3rd Sat, 2 - 4 pm: CFSNOVA CFSupport Meeting, Chantilly

    Joint CFSNova Meeting with FM Fight Club

    Showing of Award Winning CFS Film UNREST

    Hoping to shed light on her strange symptoms, Jennifer Brea grabs a camera and films the darkest moments unfolding before her eyes as she is derailed by M.E. (commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a mysterious illness.

    In this story of love and loss, newlyweds Jennifer and Omar search for answers as they face unexpected obstacles with great heart. Often confined by her illness to the private space of her bed, Jen is moved to connect with others around the globe. Utilizing Skype and social media, she unlocks a forgotten community with intimate portraits of four other families suffering similarly. Jennifer Brea's wonderfully honest portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around an illness 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.

    Unrest world-premiered January in the documentary competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize for editing. It has since screened at SxSW, CPH:DOX, HotDocs, River Run (Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature), and the Nashville Film Festival (Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature).
