The Fibromyalgia and pain association of Xàbia (AFIDO), in collaboration with the Department of Health, has programmed the projection of the documentary film Query 32 to give visibility to this disease. It will be on Thursday, October 27, at 6:00 p.m. at the Casa de Cultura. Entrance is free and open.
The documentary directed by Ruth Somalo addresses the stories of six women who have lived for years under a social context of suspicion in which they are accused of exaggerating, faking and somatizing their afflictions, but when they meet Dr. Palop their life begins to change .
It is a choral portrait of extraordinary intimacy in which the protagonists delve into the autobiographical and emotional aspects that have marked their identity while they learn to live with chronic pain, with the difficulties associated with the symptoms of fibromyalgia (FMS) and with the shame of the stigma associated with this disease that affects a greater percentage of women than men.
After the screening, a colloquium will be opened in which the director, Dr. Vicente Palop Larrea (coordinator of the Fibromyalgia Unit of the Dénia Hospital) and Teresa Candela Sánchez (holistic therapist and yoga teacher) will participate.
