Synopsis

“It was like I had died but was forced to watch as the world moved on,” says filmmaker Jennifer Brea, describing her condition known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) – a serious illness which causes are not yet medically understood. “Unrest” can be seen not only as a way to understand what is actually happening with her and thousands others around the world but also as a fight against stereotypical thinking that it is only “in their head”.

"""It’s always tempting to look at the past as something strange and distant, to say, “Thank God we know better now.” But what I could never have imagined, had I not gotten this disease, is that we’re still doing this."""
