Kim A. Snyder,
When Harvard PhD student Jennifer Brea is struck down at 28 by a fever that leaves her bedridden, doctors tell her it's "all in her head." Determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and her community, a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly called chronic fatigue syndrome.
I've seen the film several times and it's still touching me. When I organised a screening, more then 100 people showed up. We had to refuse people as the theater couldn't hold more. This film reveals the hidden world of an illness that's misunderstood, unknown for the public, worldwide. The impact is huge and it's just the beginning of a movement that can't be stopped anymore.
This is a must see!
