Movie poster for film "Unrest".

Just dropping in to let you know that Unrest, the independent documentary made from bed by ME/CFS patient Jennifer Brea, is now available for rent on iTunes Australia. If you’re after a belated Christmas present, it would mean a lot to me if you’d consider giving it a watch.

You can read more about Unrest in my film review for The AIMN, or my previous post on the topic.


Unrest is available on iTunes Australia for $6.99AUD or purchase it for $18.99AUD. See the Unrest website for a wider range of international viewing options, including DVD and Blu-Ray orders.
