body-1@2x

The body is a lonely place is a short documentary film containing fragments of speech from a disintegrating life with an eating disorder. It is shot and directed by film maker Ida Lindgren and written by My Roman Fagerlind. In the film we hear the obsessively disciplined thoughts of a young woman who describes her illness as if it were an all-controlling guardian. We hear a psychiatrist give a detached diagnosis and a doctor’s detailed instructions for her patient’s dietary plan. The body is a lonely place was nominated for a Guldbagge in 2017.
