Film Screening of ‘Unrest’

Saturday 20th January at 4pm

Doors Open at 3pm – Post Film Discussion after the films

Theatr Gwaun West Street Fishguard

Sundance Film Festival award-winning film Unrest, an intimate portrait of filmmaker Jennifer Brea’s courageous fight to overcome the disabling disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) — also known as chronic fatigue syndrome.
Aged 28 and brilliant — working on her PhD at Harvard and about to marry the love of her life — Jen suffered, in a short space of time, a series of viral infections that left her incapacitated. So ill she becomes bedbound, often in excruciating pain, and looking for answers. Disbelieved by doctors and 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. Though Jen and Omar may have to accept that they will never live the life they originally dreamed about, together they find resilience, strength, and meaning in their community and each other.
Unrest is also a love story; how Jen and her new husband Omar forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.All proceeds will go towards Cwtch (Pembrokeshire) and Theatr Gwaun. The event is supported by donations from the X Ray Dept, Withybush Hospital.

WE

UNDERSTAND

THAT LIVING

WITH A

CHRONIC

ILLNESS CAN

  • Have an impact on your life and your family’s.
  • Create fear and uncertainties at any stage of the diagnostic process
  • Be a life-changing experience.
  • Be difficult for other people to accept and understand.

 Welcome to our Campaign 

 

“Walk In My Shoes” is a campaign devised by member of CWTCH (Pembrokeshire) to inform people about chronic health conditions and symptoms you can’t always see.

Our members have reported to us that in order to fit in with friends, family and society in general, they most often try and hide their pain so that it isn’t visible to everyone. They do this because it is a way of coping.

THE CWTCH A-TEAM
CWTCH-Pembrokeshire is managed by a combination of trustees and volunteers, who the majority have a chronic health condition, so they understand the needs of our members. Without our volunteers we wouldn’t be able to offer our members any of the services we currently provide. To see more about our team and put names to faces, please choose the our team from the drop down menu.

Do you want to volunteer with us ???

 

As a volunteer, you will be working with the CWTCH trustees to help run the support group, meet and support adults with a chronic health condition and also give us your ideas for activities and fundraising. Volunteers are really important to us and we could not run CWTCH without them!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at: [email protected]
