Animated Minds: Becoming Invisible
Directed by Billie Loebner
Violent nightmares, suicidal wishes and an inability to live in your own skin. This film explores the dynamics that can drive young people to develop eating disorders beyond talk of the Size Zero culture and peer pressure. Nicole wanted to reduce her seize not to ‘look good’ or fit smaller clothes. Feeling alone and disconnected from everything and everyone around her, she became severely anorexic because she wanted to ‘occupy less space in the world’, become invisible and ultimately disappear.
