America the Beautiful 2
Sun, 24 Feb 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
"America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments," will screen Sunday, Feb. 24 in Grafton-Stovall Theatre, at 6:00 p.m. A follow-up to “America The Beautiful," award-winning director Darryl Roberts examines the cause of our country’s obsession with dieting. The film humanizes what has become an intellectual debate over whether weight loss programs should ever be promoted. It offers a passionate and sometimes humorous documentation of the battle to be… well… thin.
A brief panel discussion will follow the film. This event is part of Eating Disorder Awareness Month and is sponsored by the University Health Center.
