Event Description

Hopewell Eating Disorder Support Centre presents the First Canadian Public Screening of TEEN TRUTH : AN INSIDE LOOK AT BODY IMAGE.
 The truth as told and filmed by teenagers. A 22-minute film that all youth, parents and professionals working with youth should see.
Directed by Erahm Christopher, the film is an original, thought-provoking documentary that intertwines compelling teen interviews with true stories of young males and females struggling to overcome their dangerous fixations on an unhealthy self-image. With a focus on teen performance enhancing drug use and eating disorders, this multifaceted film paints a startling picture of how an array of influences have encouraged youth to take extreme measures to control their physiques. This striking blend of teen shot footage, expert interviews, and a powerful visual style, uncovers the truth about  how negative influences control the way teens feel about their bodies and challenges youths to think differently about how they see themselves and their peers.
Expert panel discussion will follow the screening.
7:00-9:00 p.m.Doors open 6:30 p.m
