Invisible: Interview with Filmmaker Nick Demos
Melissa Swanson has joined the campaign to help bring the independent film Invisible to the big screen. As part of her commitment, Melissa interviewed filmmaker Nick Demos and shares that interview with us here.
From the Invisible website:
Desperate to help his mother fight her symptoms, filmmaker Nick Demos meets a young athlete, a human rights advocate, and a struggling migrant - all in different stages of the often-debilitating pain syndrome, Fibromyalgia.
Invisible tells the often ignored stories of people suffering from a syndrome that many still believe doesn’t exist. The film also exposes the fight with insurance and drug companies for proper treatment and how access to holistic health and education is determined by class and money. Through his journey to understand Fibromyalgia better as a way of helping his mother better, filmmaker Nick Demos finally addresses his own suspicions about having the syndrome himself.
What was your inspiration for making this film?
The film’s original inspiration came from Megan Densmore, one of our subjects in the film. She has had Fibromyalgia since she was a teen and had the idea to create the film. She is a close friend to our lead producer, Pallavi, who loved the idea and then approached me. What Pallavi didn’t know is that my mother suffers with Fibromyalgia. I was immediately interested in directing the project.
