About the movie:
Made over 6 years, director Jeanie Finlay charts the rise of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon from anonymous blogger to NYTimes best-selling author and beloved podcaster. Her aim? - a paradigm shift in the way we see fat people and the fat on our own bodies.
Her life-changing work has brought her an ardent, international audience but also threats to her life. One of her biggest challenges is getting her parents to listen.
Your Fat Friend, a film about fatness, family, the complexities of change, and the deep, messy feelings we hold about our bodies.
