About this event

Sit back, relax and watch a free screening of ‘Unrest’ with the Liberation Coordinators. The film addresses people’s perceptions of disability.

Jennifer Brea's Sundance award-winning documentary, Unrest, is a personal journey from patient to advocate to storyteller. Jennifer is twenty-eight years-old, working on her PhD at Harvard, and months away from marrying the love of her life when a mysterious fever leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her it's "all in her head," she picks up her camera as an act of defiance and brings us into a hidden world of millions that medicine abandoned.

There'll be free snacks and soft drinks.
