Tell me more
Eating disorders are the number one killer of all mental illnesses, yet they remain widely misunderstood. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and their variants, consist of severe disturbances in eating behavior and weight management. They often coexist with other mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The consequences of eating disorders are serious and can be life-threatening.
Fattitude The Movie
Get Your Tickets Today We want you in on this conversation! Join us March 11th at the Sie Film Center for a special screening of the movie Fattitude. Special 30 Minute Q&A with Filmmaker Viridiana Lieberman following the film
Fattitude is a feature-length, full-color, documentary film that examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies. Fattitude is the brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman – self-proclaimed pop-culture junkies with academic feminist backgrounds.
