    I cry just watching the trailer.
    So many years suffering alone.

    I believe that it will be shown on US public television sometime soon. Does anyone remember the details and dates?

    Just realized it has another hurdle to clear - the academy will choose 5 films to be nominated, from the short list of 15 - I misunderstood, though it is still fabulous news!

    The category is called disease and mental health. There is no other category for diseases on PBS, as far as I can tell.

    In the Time for Unrest Facebook group people asked Jen if it's possible to support Unrest in the "Oscar race". Here is a summary of the ideas. Everything can be done from bed. :)

    1. Rate Unrest on IMDb (important): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3268850/
    2. Rate/write reviews on iTunes, Amazon and other platforms
    3. Comment on awards coverage. To help people reading this coverage see that there is a passionate audience for this film, a movement behind it and big themes/issues (e.g. disability rights, health care, 17 million invisible, marginalized people worldwide etc.)

    (OT, but while I was at it, I also rated
    Forgotten Plague: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4223204/?ref_=nv_sr_1 and
    Voices from the Shadows: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1955051/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1, easy way to support three ME movies in one go :))
