“Young New Zealanders are speaking out about their eating disorders in a bid to break down the negative stigma and address an area in mental health they say is slipping through the cracks.” – NZ Herald
“I really wanted to bring a human voice to what the emotional experience of living with an eating disorder is like,” director Miryam Jacobi told Radio New Zealand.
Disorder is an intimate insight into the perspectives of New Zealanders who have lived with disordered eating.
Led by Auckland-based production company Two One One Three Creatives, the team behind Disorder spoke with a diverse range of Kiwis with a broad spectrum of experiences.
From anorexia, bulimia, orthorexia to over-eating, Disorder shines a light on these much-needed conversations, without the shame which so often presents itself.
