Time For Documentary Movie: “I’m A Child Anorexic”
“Filmed over four months, I’m a Child Anorexic documents the highs and pitiful lows of their 12-week programme, featuring their own video diaries and conversations with each other.
It is a raw and shocking insight into the kids’ beliefs about food, dieting and fat; and the terrifying power ofTV, magazines, celebrities, parents and peers in influencing and distorting their perceptions.
Watch these girls go from the dangerously emaciated and malnourished states they arrive in to a healthy weight and their departure.
But has their attitude to food changed? And can they maintain their weight back at home, with the constant pressures from society to stay slim?”
