Jennifer Brea - 2017


Director: Jennifer Brea Year: 2017 Duration: 98 Spoken language: English Subtitles: Dutch Partner: GRIP

How do you cope with your body suddenly giving up on you - especially when every doctor you see tells you 'it's all in your head'?

Jennifer Brea is a 28 year old PhD student at Harvard and only months away from marrying the love of her life, when a mysterious fever leaves her bedridden. When the doctors tell her it's all in her head she turns to her camera, determined to portray the suffering she and millions with her go through every day.

Through Skype, Jennifer connects with fellow CFS/M.E. sufferers around the world, and paints an honest and touching portrait of four other families who have been, like her, suffering in silence - misunderstood or written off by the medical field. The personal and sometimes heart-wrenching footage spurs the viewer to look beyond the stigma.

DisABILITY Filmfestival 2022: #Grenzeloos anders #unboudedly together

Our organisation

How do we work?

The DisABILITY Film Festival wants to challenge the existing image of people with disabilities. Disabled people are not always dependent. Their lives are not all doom and gloom. Starting from this belief, the festival wants to offer a platform to people with disabilities, to work together towards a more nuanced imaging. With the movie screenings, documentaries and workshops we organise, we mean to take a first step in the right direction.

We'd love to help
