ABOUT THE FILM

As liberal, freethinking, inclusive people we pride ourselves on not discriminating against others. But there is one culturally acceptable area where we feel free to heap scorn and abuse: discrimination based on fat. With laudable humour and a flood of pop culture references, Fattitude shows how we force fat people into stereotypical roles, deprive them of basic rights (did you know people can be legally fired for being fat?) and make negative assumptions about their intelligence and health. The cost and restricted availability of healthy food makes this a socioeconomic problem as well. What’s your fattitude? Challenge it with this engaging film.
