Press Release: Homesick Explores Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

Check out the new trailer for Homesick, store a documentary that we’ve produced about Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. Homesick was originally filmed in 1995. Director Susan Abod was so sick that she couldn’t finish the film. In 2011, we came on board to help. We’re excited to bring Homesick to you on September 15, 2013. We’re finding that Homesick is increasingly more relevant each year as more and more people get Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.

WA – Homesick, Sildenafil
directed by Susan Abod, is available for public screening on September 15, 2013.

Imagine your house is making you dangerously sick. Common products like paint, carpeting, new building ma- terials and insecticides are now your worst enemies. Your bones ache, you’re feverish, you suffer from extreme headaches, disabling fatigue, mental confusion, asthma and nausea. The longer you stay in your house, the sicker you get, but you can’t imagine how or where you’re going to find a safe home. You are one of the mil- lions suffering from the silent epidemic of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS).

In Homesick, Susan Abod hits the road to learn whether other people with MCS are finding safe housing. On her journey to the Southwestern United States, Susan meets people from all walks of life. Their living quarters range from a house on stilts to tents and a teepee.

Susan Abod is an award-winning filmmaker, professional singer, songwriter, and recording artist. Her first film, Funny You Don’t Look Sick: An Autobiography of an Illness (64 min), is an intimate portrait of her life after developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.
