Thanks to all of you for your replies. Hutan's response above is just one subjective assessment, but it is what I am fearing. If the objective is to make pwme feel that they are not alone, then that's fine. However my main agenda if I host a screening will be to engage medics, social workers, teachers etc. In my humble opinion, illness is not really something to be dramatised. We all know what the media makes of folk with ME, and that's why I think we need to be careful. I've not seen it, but I suspect it's very different to any film I might produce myself about ME. For starters, the main pic would be one of me looking perfectly normal and active - sorry to all of you who can't do that, but it's my own reality, and that of many other sufferers too I think. I watched a video of Dr.Charles Shepherd on the NHS Choices website the other day - you wouldn't know he was ill unless he said so. OK, maybe the film is intended to raise awareness of severe ME only. Are the objectives stated anywhere in any precise detail?
