Sunday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Kingdom County Productions is proud to launch its new documentary film “All of Me” by award winning filmmaker Bess O’Brien. The film is touring Vermont this September and October. Twenty four screenings are scheduled across the state.
The film will be screened at Chandler Music Hall in Randolph on Sunday, Oct 2, 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for youth. Tickets sold only at the door night of the show.
“All of Me” focuses on the lives of women, girls and boys who are caught in the downward spiral of eating disorders and their struggle to regain a sense of self-compassion and healing. The film also focuses on the parents who struggle with their children around this devastating disease.
Although the film focuses primarily on bulimia and anorexia, the underlying issues of other eating disorders are touched upon in the film. In addition, “All of Me” delves deep into the often pervasive ways that food, dieting, and body image affect all of us on a daily basis. Many of us may not be diagnosed with an official eating disorder but struggle with our own histories and insecurities around food and weight.
Most importantly “All of Me” centers on the underlying emotional issues that eating disorders stem from including depression, anxiety, trauma, sensitivity, control, perfectionism, and other mental health issues.
In addition, the movie gives hope to those struggling—people can recover and reclaim their bodies, their emotional connection with themselves and others.
“All of Me” follows Director Bess O’Brien’s last film “The Hungry Heart,” which highlighted the opiate epidemic in Vermont. That film toured extensively across the state and has been screened across the country over the last three years.
