Abzurdah (2015, written and directed by Daniela Goggi)

[No. 38 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]

This movie is based on a true story by Cielo Latini, about herself as a teenager who meets and falls in love with a man from the internet. Her obsession with him takes her on a path of self-destruction, and eventually, aneroxia.

We don’t get a lot of stories depicting this type of disorder. From watching this movie I learned thatĀ there are other ways this eating disorder can arise besides trying to look ‘beautiful’, which under most societal beauty standards, is to be thin.
