Fat World

Lorna Boschman

1994, 25:00 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 098.08

Fat World is about being fat, from a fat perspective. Directed and edited by award winning documentarist Lorna Boschman, the tape is a rare opportunity to listen to private conversations between Boschman and her collaborators. The "fat experts" are surrounded in the frame by fat animals, creating a multi-layered articulation of power and grace. Topics discussed include self-image, growing up fat, cross-cultural comparisons of attitudes, and experiences in intimate relationships. Beautifully shot and intelligently edited, Fat World is a must-see for anyone who has ever questioned socially imposed standards of beauty.
