DO I LOOK FAT?
(USA/ 2005/ 56 min)
Travis Mathews

Do I Look Fat? tells the personal stories of seven diverse men who have struggled, or continue to struggle, with eating disorders and body image issues. Interconnecting themes, such as childhood wounding, internalized homophobia and the effects of HIV/AIDS on the body are given attention. Perhaps most importantly, the film doesn't shy away from asking why these common histories have, until now, been left in the proverbial closet at a community level.
