Join us at T2F for the Karachi Premiere of Sundance award-winning documentary, 'Unrest'. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director, Jennifer Brea and activist, Nevra Elis Ahmed working with the global advocacy group #MEAction Network

[[About the film]]
Twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Disbelieved by doctors yet determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and discovers a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome. At its core, Unrest is a love story. Together, Jen and her new husband, Omar, must find a way to build a life and fight for a cure. Their struggle to forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.
