Abby Thompson and Blythe Baird have won at the AWI’s Olive Film Collection. The film deals with the topic of eating disorders – something that hasn’t yet been discussed as much as it should be.

The film takes the concept of heavy women being applauded for eating less, even thought that might be detrimental to their health and tries to show how wrong that concept is.

The short film is inspired by Blythe Baird, who had written a poem about her experience with eating disorder. The film is now the 36th addition to AWI’s OLIVE Film Collection.
