Winner - Audience Award, Best Documentary, Sheffield International Documentary Festival, 2023

Follow activist Aubrey Gordon over six years as she goes from anonymous blogger to wildly popular author and podcaster in her effort to lead a paradigm shift in the way that we think about "fat.”

See Aubrey go from anonymous blogger Yrfatfriend to beloved co-host of podcast Maintenance Phase with an audience of millions, and the New York Times bestselling author of "You Just Need to Lose Weight": And 19 Other Myths About Fat People.

Her aim? A change to the way that we view fat people and the fat on our own bodies.

The world may be listening, but her family have a way to go in understanding her work. A film about fatness, family, the complexities of change and the messy feelings we hold about our bodies.

Stick around for a pre-recorded Q&A with director Jeanie Finlay and film subject Aubrey Gordon after the February 14 screening.

Tickets: $15 (Members from $10)
