I Remember Me (2001)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a much-misunderstood illness that many believe is a psychological condition rather than a physical malady. Filmmaker Kim Snyder, however, begs to differ; as a longtime sufferer of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, she has firmly held opinions on the disease and its impact, and I Remember Me is a documentary that examines CFS, its effects, and its causes. Snyder examines some of the more unusual aspects of the disease (such as the fact it seems to crop up most often in specific geographic areas), and interviews a number of people living with CFS, some famous (director Blake Edwards and Olympic soccer star Michelle Akers), and some ordinary (such as a high school student whose battle with CFS forced him to attend his high school graduation in a wheelchair). … More

Critic Reviews for I Remember Me
Perhaps it will prompt some researchers not only to learn of the symptoms but to look further at the cause.
A documentary which does what the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta shamefully failed to do: connects the dots.
A tender, yet pointed documentary of perseverance, thwarted hope and medical buffoonery.
[A] passionate film.
An intrepid sleuth, Ms. Snyder seems to have left no stone unturned in her search for answers.
The interpolated stock footage is a misguided attempt at visual poetry, and some of the testimonials are underedited, but as a work of passionate advocacy, I Remember Me can't be faulted.
Director Kim Snyder suffers from the syndrome herself, so it's all the more remarkable that she actually got a complete film made, much less one this compelling.
Never successfully striking a balance, the filmmaker only manages to create a confusing, rambling and poorly edited succession of stories.
This well-made documentary is to be commended for its passionate overview of the troubling illness known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Well edited, with an informative narration, the film is an important step toward understanding this bizarre disease.
