Autoimmune illnesses such as: Lupus, Grave's Disease, Sjogren's Syndrome, M.S., and Crohn's Disease tend to strike young women in alarming numbers. Yet this near epidemic seems to have gone unnoticed on the public radar.
Priority Seating is a documentary that examines what it means to be an American woman with an autoimmune illness. The film features interviews with four women, each with a different autoimmune condition. The similarities in their stories, despite differences in their background and specific diagnoses, reveal shocking conditions that demand immediate action. Priority Seating is the first film project to investigate the impact of autoimmunity as a whole.
This video is a three-minute trailer that provides a preview of the full-length documentary.
