The Pain of Others + Q&A

Fri 7th September 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Morgellons disease is a medical mystery. Although doctors have no explanation for the condition, thousands of sufferers claim to experience a persistent crawling sensation under their skin, thin fibres growing out of their body and a host of other symptoms. Penny Lane dives head first into the online community of Morgellons patients re-working candid home-videos uploaded to YouTube by three women who are afflicted with the disease. The Pain of Others explores the slippery ideas around self-diagnosis, empathy and online support networks but Lane’s original and unsettling film refuses to offer answers to any of its own questions.

+ Q&A with director Penny Lane
