WINTER HILL - LEE GRAY (2018)

Winter Hill is a personal and powerful documentary short film by filmmaker Lee Gray. It is personal because it tells the story of his sister's lost childhood. Having fallen ill with ME/CFS when she was only 13-years-old, Melanie (not her real name) missed out on all the normal rights-of-passage, such as boyfriends and exams. Instead, she grew up in an isolated world where she was often judged by a lack of an obvious illness: her ME diagnosis was misunderstood time and again. "People are visual beasts..." as she says while talking about a disease that challenges sufferers both physically and emotionally. One of the most frustrating aspects of the illness is the erroneous belief that it is a psychological illness. As with heart disease, it may be triggered or exasperated by stress but no-one claims a heart attack is psychological.
