Made over 6 years, acclaimed director Jeanie Finlay charts the rise of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon from anonymous blogger to New York Times best selling author and beloved podcaster.

Her aim? A paradigm shift in the way we see fat people and the fat on our own bodies.

Gordon's life changing work has brought her an ardent, international audience but also threats to her life. One of her biggest challenges is getting her parents to listen.

Your Fat Friend, a film about fatness, family, the complexities of change and the deep, messy feeling we hold about our bodies.

The SDH Reclaim the Frame screening on Sun 18 Feb will be introduced by Tresca Mallon followed by a recorded Q&A with director Jeanie Finlay and writer and activist, Aubrey Gordon.

Reclaim The Frame is an organisation dedicated to bringing ever greater audiences to films by people from marginalised genders to offer a wider perspective of the world. This project seeks to empower audiences to make a positive intervention in the distribution and exhibition space, to prove that these filmmakers are commercially viable and in demand.

Our Reclaim The Frame events create a space to discuss what's under the surface of each story. If you want to be an Advocate for the work we do, join our mailing list.
