An excellent, heart-felt journey
26 January 2016 | by daconley12See all my reviews

This film is an honest, grass roots attempt to unveil a highly unknown disease to the world. Forgotten plague, despite it's inevitable flaws as a low-budget work is undeniably an incredibly beautiful film; all its inner parts (cinematography, soundtrack, patient interview, art design) work seamlessly together to tell a story from an intimate yet global perspective; a story necessary, controversial, and haunting.

I am so happy to have seen this film, and had no idea of the extent of suffering those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have experienced silently all around us.

Please watch this film. It is vital to our country and worlds medical and moral future, and the majority of those involved had never been part of making a film prior to Forgotten Plague.

Bravo to all those involved with Forgotten Plague. The world is bettered by your selfless contribution to those fighting with ME/CFS.
