Fattitude, Film Screening & Discussion


A dynamic team, Averill and Lieberman possess the filmmaking, scholarly, writing, editing and production skills to relay the complex reality of fat prejudice in Western Culture.

Currently, there exists no film that truly examines this issue – an issue that affects not only fat people but also anyone who hates his or her body or anyone who may someday become fat.

Fattitude is a feature length, full-color, documentary film that examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies.

Fattitude is the brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman – self-proclaimed pop-culture junkies with academic feminist backgrounds.
