What is your refund policy? All tickets are final and non-refundable unless the host or Kinema has canceled the screening.
Do I need a Kinema account to watch the film? Yes. To protect the security of the film, everyone who purchases a ticket needs to register for a free account.
Can I share my ticket or link with someone else? No. Think of it like renting a movie — your rental (ticket) is good for one device only. If you have others in the same room as you watching on the same device, that's okay. But if someone else uses your link to watch on their device, you will not be able to watch on yours. Only one device can access each ticket at a time.
What happens if I'm late to the screening? Just as with a regular movie theater, the film will start at the time indicated on your ticket (12 PM Pacific / 3 PM Eastern). If you are late, you can still enter the virtual theater but will join the film already in progress.
How early can I enter the virtual theater? The virtual "doors" will open 30 minutes before the film is scheduled to start. We suggest arriving early to make sure you are settled before the film begins.
Can I watch on my iPad or iPhone? Yes, Kinema allows you to watch using Safari on iOS 12 or later. At this time, chat is only available on laptop or desktop computer.
Can I watch on my TV? Yes, you can use Chromecast, Airplay, or connect your TV directly to a laptop or desktop computer using an HDMI cable.
What if I run into technical issues? Kinema recommends watching on a non-mobile device and using the latest version of Chrome. If you are encountering issues, please try refreshing your page. If that doesn’t work, contact Kinema directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the chat option in the bottom right corner. As hosts, we are unable to assist you with the Kinema platform.
What if I have other questions? Please visit the Kinema FAQs and click on Audience.

About the film
When Nick decides to help his mother fight Fibromyalgia, a widely misunderstood syndrome labeled a "woman’s disease," little does he realize that he would have to confront it himself. Invisible is the most comprehensive feature documentary that tells the often ignored stories of people living with a devastating 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 better understand Fibromyalgia as a way of helping his mother, filmmaker Nick Demos finally addresses his own suspicions about having the syndrome himself.
