    UNREST is currently scoring highly on Rotten Tomatoes. It's getting some glowing reviews and high scores.

    I think leaving more reviews on this site would be a great way to highlight the film and raise awareness:

    I tweeted this link out too, so a few RTs might be good.

    You can also view UNREST on iTunes now:

    Where it also seems to be ranking highly:

    I'm not on social media, can some kind person provide me with the best way to share Unrest's availability via email?
    I remember seeing a page that pointed to the film on iTunes and also mentioned that proceeds went to getting the film to medical professionals.
    Would appreciate any help in getting this out via pony express to my favourite Old People.

    @Allele I'm also not "on" social media, although I do monitor it. Perhaps you could provide the following link in an email:


    It shows all the ways one can view it, and will be updated as things change. Regarding your favourite Old People who are less likely to view it via streaming, it may be a good idea to wait until a physical DVD is available to be ordered -- sometime in December.

    I haven't found the reference mentioning proceeds being used to educate medical professionals, but will keep looking.

    ETA a link to the above regarding proceeds: http://mailchi.mp/unrest/its-finally-here?e=09b1bf0c8d

    @Allele and others,

    Here's another helpful link when sharing information via email. Unrest will be shown by Independent Lens starting Jan. 8, 2018:


    For those who have not heard of it, Independent Lens is a TV show in the USA on public broadcasting (PBS). It shows a lot of different indie films. So "Old People" (like me!) can watch it on TV instead of having to find a streaming service online. :)

    More seriously, I knew that watching on TV was the only way that most of my family would get to see it (they would not go to a movie theater or pay to see this movie - gosh that sounds more critical than I meant, I just meant that they don't pay for movies much, just watch what's on cable).

    Some films can be watched in full on the Independent Lens web site here:


    But I don't know whether any of them are available outside the USA.

    I understand that "Unrest" will be released on DVD in December. Hope to see the live version in Crowborough (UK) before then. It's on a Sunday afternoon, which is a good time for me. The London showings that I saw were mid- late evening.

    EDIT: I see the Dec DVD has already been mentioned. Apologies.
    EDIT2: Great to see " Unrest" at top of iTunes list.
