  • Big Fat Slenderella looks at dieting from the fat person s point of view. In this work, excerpts from documentary interviews with fat people are juxtaposed with fat animals in captivity by inventive use of video effects. Advertisements for products like the ÒPoodle Diet Recipe Collection satirize the mainstream obsession with dieting and the fear of gaining weight. This award winning director combines humour and social commentary in this fast paced experimental documentary.
