F Rated Film
Friday 1st March 2024 - Thursday 7th March 2024

Dir. Jeannie Finlay, UK/US, 2023, 96 mins. With. Aubrey Gordon, Michael Hobbes.

Made over 6 years, acclaimed director Jeanie Finlay charts the rise of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon from anonymous blogger to New York Times 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 feeling we hold about our bodies.

“Another joyously insightful, subversive and ultimately uplifting documentary from the great Jeanie Finlay.” Mark Kermode

The screening on Thursday 7 March will be introduced by Robyn Lawrence, from Reclaim The Frame.
