Description'The film was made because of my own experiences of anorexia, in relation to developing as an individual/woman in this society... also because I feel that substituting an obsession with the body and with food for a deeper, less tangible problem is a very widespread activity. The media in general seem to sensationalise the subject without any understanding from the inside.' (Harriet McKern)
