Six years ago, Jennifer Brea became progressively ill with ME / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
If you haven’t heard of Jennifer Brea yet, I’m not sure where you’ve been. In 2017 she released her first feature documentary Unrest where she documented her journey of dealing with her condition. It’s currently streaming on Netflix. I highly recommend it.
As well as an award-winning documentary filmmaker and health activist, Jennifer is also a TED fellow. In 2017, she gave a powerful talk about ME, the lack of governmental support and the historical context of the disease.
