Your Fat Friend

Duration: 1h36m
Dates: Fri 23 - Thu 29 Feb 2024

Documentary filmmaker Jeanie Finlay (The Great Hip Hop Hoax) returns to our screens with her latest project. Filmed over the course of six years, Your Fat Friend charts the rise of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon from anonymous blogger 'Your Fat Friend' to NYTimes bestselling author and beloved podcaster on shows including Maintenance Phase.  

Gordon’s searingly honest writing connects her own experience with the deeply problematic myths sold by the diet and wellness industries, and the widely held biases of healthcare providers.  

She spent a decade campaigning for LGBTQIA rights so she knows that change is possible. Now it's time to advocate for herself. Her aim? A paradigm shift in the way we see fat people and the fat on our own bodies. Gordon’s work has brought her an insatiable worldwide audience, alongside abuse and death threats. Finlay’s film charts all of this, but the most meaningful personal change comes when her family starts listening to her message.   

Your Fat Friend is a film about fatness, family, the complexities of making change and the deep, messy feelings we hold about our bodies.
