THIN opens with a couple of gripping statistics: Eating disorders affect 5 million people in the United States, and more than 10 percent of those diagnosed with anorexia nervosa will die from the disease. Director Lauren Greenfield lived at the Renfrew Center for six months, gaining access to and earning the trust of both patients and staff.
She was Reed, told The Times. Advertisement As many as 10 million girls and women in the U. For violating rules, she is asked to leave the center. Advertisement Eventually, Williams completed a week outpatient program in Chattanooga, Tenn. She shared her first name, Pollack, with her grandfather.
Shelves: trauma-narratives Thin is a conflicting book for me. A photographic essay set at the Renfrew Centre and curated by Lauren Greenfield presents a series of trauma narratives intended to highlight how eating disorders do not discriminate. Much has been made of the access Greenfield was afforded to the lives of patients and the trust she earned.
Carrie W. A very well done documentary about young women in an eating disorder treatment facility. This documentary really shows what it is like to suffer from these disorders without glamorizing them. The women who are the focus of the documentary are real people, and you get to really like, and understand them. Lauren Greenfield is a fantastic photographer and filmmaker.
