When people think of mental illnesses, eating disorders don’t often come to mind. Anorexia is a mental illness that is frequently overlooked yet it has the highest death rate of any other mental illness which is why it is important to bring anorexia, and other eating disorders, into the spotlight. This is what filmmaker Laura Dyan Kezman is attempting to do by producing her documentary called “Just Eat.” The documentary, which is currently in the process of raising funds for production, will deconstruct common myths about eating disorders and explain why funding for treatment is inadequate. Kezman herself is a recovered anorexic and she hopes that this film will make it easier for sufferers to access treatment.
