Beckerman Cultural Arts Film Series: I Remember Me


I Remember Me VIEWING DATES: FEBRUARY 13 – 19 Directed by Kim Snyder | Documentary | USA, 2000 | English | 74 minutes 

Filmmaker Kim Snyder has taken up the fight for the more than 800,000 people living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)  in the U.S. Investigating the baffling malady once maligned as “yuppie flu,” Snyder interweaves her own four-year battle with the  disease with the stories of others facing the same challenges; soccer star Michelle Akers and legendary Hollywood director Blake  Edwards (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Pink Panther) are among the participants. More than an account of an epidemic unfolding, I  REMEMBER ME speaks to universal themes of loss, human perseverance and the difficulties in grappling with uncertainty.
