What about ME - Promo 2 (Double D Productions)




The Film


A standard one hour documentary aimed primarily at the UK & US markets, but not excepting all other worldwide tv markets. Distributed in cinemas, with a running length of a feature film.


People are suffering. But they are being told itís all in the mind.


Our aim is to investigate ME further, to put the plight of an ME sufferer in the publicís consciousness and to encourage further research and health policy reform.


We hope to spread the word through this website which will have videos and podcasts on ME, short virals (smart, confrontational video clips to make sure that ME is put on the agenda of politicians and newspaper editors) on the ME situation delivered multi-platform, a TV documentary aimed at a prime-time audience, a worldwide theatrical release and a docu-drama dramatizing an ME suffererís struggle, based on the novel "The State of ME", by Nasim Marie Jafry.



About ME


Myalgic encephalomyelitis has no standard diagnosis or cure, and yet there are 20 million sufferers in the world, with 30,000 of them being children in the UK alone. It receives little research funding from government agencies in the UK, USA, Europe and worldwide.


For over 25 years the research that has taken place has caused a renaming of the disease to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which instead of bringing clarity, has brought confusion breaking CFS into multiple diseases, of which none of them were physical.


This misrepresentation has existed on both sides of the Atlantic to this day.


In 2007 in the US the Center for Disease Control formed an investigative panel which concluded CFS could be seen as a public health problem, while currently not seen as a priority.


Thousands have signed petitions to ask the CDC to change their definitions, which they continue to ignore.


When examining private research findings, what is becoming more apparent is that CFS is actually a transmissible disease, which could affect thousands, if not millions more.
