National Film Board of Canada - Thin Dreams
(DVD)


Backordered

'Thin Dreams' looks at how young women in high school feel about their bodies and how their self-images are affected by North America's obsession with thinness. Whether fat, skinny or "just right" from others' perspectives, the majority of high school females worry about their weight, talk endlessly about it and either diet or plan to diet. Most are convinced they are fat.

Press

This film is an excellent discussion starter on body images, values and the power of the media and advertising. In mixed female/male classes, discussion can extend to how male students feel about their bodies and the factors that help to shape these self-images.
