路易泰魯:厭食症

Award-winning documentary maker Louis Theroux sets out to understand the disorder with the highest death rate of any mental illness. Anorexia, a pathological fear of eating and gaining weight, affects around one in every 250 women in the UK at some point in their lives. Immersing himself in two of London’s biggest adult eating-disorder treatment facilities, Louis meets women of all ages and at various stages of their illness. As he witnesses the dangerous power that anorexia holds over them, he finds himself drawn into a complex relationship between the disorder and the person it inhabits.

厭食症是一種恐懼食慾和害怕體重增加的病態恐懼症。以英國為例,每二百五十名女性中就有一位受到影響。路易泰魯在倫敦兩間最大的成人飲食失調治療中心,見到不同年齡的女性因厭食症造成的傷害,令自己也陷入失調與個人生活之間的複雜關係。備有中文字幕。
