Two ME Films
There are two short films about ME that have recently been produced and I would recommend them to you.
A 10 minute film on ME was shown on Carte Blanche, South Africa’s longest-running TV investigation show, on 20 February 2017. It has won plaudits from around the world for its straight talking about this illness, and choice of interview subjects – particularly Dr Ron Davis and David Tuller. The UK ME Association has made the film available on it’s website and you can watch it by clicking here.
In the other film, which lasts for 18 minutes, Dr Ron Davis presents an ME/CFS research update from his lab at the Stanford Genome Technology Centre in California, USA. The Centre has made significant breakthroughs towards understanding the molecular mechanisms of the disease and is now in a position to test chemical compounds for treatment.
The film is available to watch on YouTube, thanks to the Open Medicine Foundation – click here – and you can read a transcript of all that was said on the ME Association website by clicking here.
