Dear Anorexia | short film [NEDA awareness week]

0 ratings

Video Description

"Inspired by the experiences of a close friend, this short film depicts the journey of a young girl on the road to her recovery from an eating disorder. To help her with the challenges that lie ahead, she writes a letter to her other half: Anorexia Nervosa. These are the words she wrote.

Last year I uploaded a video named 'Breathe' around the time of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. I thought it only fitting that this year I made another video to raise awareness... but with perhaps a more uplifting message behind it.

Here are some helpful links below for you read more about eating disorders or even seek help if need it:
