Netflix released a seven-part documentary last month called Afflicted. The series followed the lives of seven people living with chronic conditions. Many hoped the series would provide an intimate insight into what it’s like to live with a chronic condition. In my view, the Afflicted was unable to do this.
I watched the series and found a number with issues with the representation of the participants and their treatment during the production process. I unpack all of this in my review. Check it out.
