Description

Come to the first DBL Movie Night! October 26, Doors at 6:00 pm, film at 6:30 pm!

UNREST, the Sundance award-winning documentary about ME, the most common disease you've never seen, is coming to Denver Biolabs on Thrusrday, October 26!

“riveting...equal parts medical mystery, science lesson,
political advocacy primer and even a love story.”
– San Francisco Chronicle

"remarkably intimate, deeply edifying and a stirring call to action."
- Los Angeles Times

Twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. 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.

Unrest world-premiered January in the documentary competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Prize for editing. It has since screened at SxSW, CPH:DOX, HotDocs, River Run (Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature), the Nashville Film Festival (Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature), the Sheffield Doc/Fest (Illuminate Award), the New Zealand International Film Festival, and the Melbourne International Film Festival. It also has a companion VR piece which premiered at Tribeca and won the Jury Award for best VR at Sheffield/DocFest.

We’ll be serving popcorn and light refreshments, and feel free to bring snacks to share!

(Suggested donation is $10 to cover licensing the film!)
