We are thrilled to announce that Unrest is in the running for the 2017-18 Independent Lens Audience Award! It was an honor to have Unrest premiere on PBS | Independent Lens this past January and it would mean the world to us if we could count on your support for this award– after all, this film was especially made to serve audiences like you.

Voting for the Audience Award opens today Monday, June 18th and ends on Friday, June, 29th, 2018 at 1 PM Pacific Standard Time. Cast your vote now!

If you found solace in watching Unrest, if you felt seen, if Unrest moved you or your friends, family, neighbors to greater understanding and empathy, please vote and encourage others to vote as well.

Winning this award would mean renewed interest in Unrest and therefore, further visibility for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Let’s keep elevating ME every chance we get until the neglect and stigma are gone for good.

Let’s make some noise for ME! Vote now!

    1. “UNREST” was so moving it was heartbreaking. My sister and I were so distraught when the movie ended that we just could not stay for the panel discussion. It is a MUST SEE.

    I’ve had ME for over 20 years. It wasn’t until my grown children watched ‘Unrest’ with their spouses, did they finally understand this devastating illness, and how it affects the patient and especially the main caregiver. I cast my vote for Unrest as it brought my family back together in the understanding and empathy for all involved in this horrendous disease.
