Event Details

Time for Unrest is a global impact campaign that seeks to increase awareness, education, research and funding around ME.

This condition is generally not taught in undergraduate medical education and can be misunderstood within the medical profession. Unrest gives a perfect insight into how debilitating ME/CFS can be and an opportunity to discuss the condition with a panel of clinicians and those with first hand experience, so we may learn more about it.

Unrest world-premiered January in the documentary competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize for editing. It has since screened at several documentary festivals including River Run (Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature), the Nashville Film Festival (Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature) and Sheffield Doc/Fest (Illuminate Award). It also has a companion VR piece which won the Jury Award for best VR at Sheffield/DocFest earlier this year.

This event is primarily to educate and is therefore free to medical students, junior doctors, consultants and other medical professionals. However, if possible, please consider a small donation to help local sufferers through the Sheffield ME Group. As little as £2 can make a difference.

The Panel consists of:
Chair is Dr Liz Walton - an academic GP with an interest in ME/CFS 
Dr Charles Shepherd - Honorary Medical Advisor to the ME Association
Victoria Strassheim - ME/CFS researcher University of Newcastle
Ms Anne Nichol Sheffield ME/CFS Service Manager
Ms Diana Shapiro Carer of severe sufferer 
Prof Annalena Venneri - Professor and researcher into ME/CFS University of Sheffield

The event is organised through a collaboration between the Sheffield Clinical Academic Society, the Sheffield Academic Medicine Society and UK Producers Shella Films and Together Films.
