Discrimination, Doxxing, and That 'Louie' Episode: A Q&A With the Filmmakers Behind 'Fattitude'

Discrimination, Doxxing, and That 'Louie' Episode: A Q&A With the Filmmakers Behind 'Fattitude' | Herstory | Scoop.it
RH Reality Check recently spoke to Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman, who are crowdsourcing funds for Fattitude, their documentary about fat prejudice. The filmmakers discuss the core principles of Fattitude, the harassment they've experienced while making the film, and much more.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Quote: We entered the sphere of making this film with the belief that diversity and diverse voices were extensively important, and one of the current flaws with the trailer—which will not be true of this film—is that it is all women’s voices. It is our goal, by the time we complete this film, that it is a film about fat men and fat women of every race, creed, sex, color, all of the above, because we believe only in that space can you truly have a conversation about what’s being experienced.

An opinionated woman obsessed with objects, entertained by ephemera, intrigued by researching, fascinated by culture & addicted to writing. The wind says my name; doesn't put an @ in front of it, so maybe you don't notice. http://www.kitsch-slapped.com

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it.
