Film Description

"Voices from the Shadows is a compassionate and moving exposé that bears witness to the tragic consequences of psychiatric prejudice and medical ignorance concerning one of the most prevalent illnesses of the 21st century.

The film foregrounds the riveting stories of several British families confronting what must be everyone's worst nightmare: a loved one suffering a life-altering illness that leaves him or her bedridden and in constant pain, with no apparent cure.

But what if the medical establishment made the situation worse instead of better?

Such are the heartbreaking circumstances of the under-reported controversy surrounding ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), aka chronic fatigue syndrome.

Firsthand accounts from patients, caretakers, and medical experts paint a shockingly confused state of affairs—and underscore the urgency and frustration around this issue.

A call to action for anyone who cares about the health and wellbeing of their community, this powerful film is equally a tribute to those whose voices must be heard."

- Atissa Manshouri


"Voices from the Shadows is the most important and significant film on pediatric ME that has ever been produced"

–  Professor Leonard Jason

Contributors to the film include - Professor Leonard Jason, Dr Nigel Speight and Professor Malcolm Hooper.
