    Does anyone know why Unrest was chosen as the name?

    Why do they say our illness is an autoimmune disease?: 3rd paragraph down:

    "Brea, then a Harvard PhD student, thought she could fight the autoimmune disease with symptoms that include muscle pain and sensitivity to light and sound by telling herself what she had was merely “in her head.” But despite her willpower, Brea collapsed once she made it to the door."

    Another laughable mistake, Lime disease. Ouch!

    “I hear from women all of the time, who were later diagnosed with fibromyalgia, lime disease and lupus, who were initially told they were hypochondriacs,” Brea said in the film. “Eighty percent of autoimmune patients are women. I can’t help wonder if that’s why we’re disbelieved.”

    That's not a mistake. I have that. Best treatment is a home remedy, solution of salts and spirits.

    It's terrific that this is in Variety!

    The NoFilmSchool interview is fantastic - I learned all sorts of fascinating things about how Jen made the film and how she felt about it. I highly recommend it.

    I found several pages of reviews for"Unrest" by googling "sundance film unrest reviews". The half dozen or so I read were very positive
