    Jeanie Finlay

  • Starring

    Aubrey Gordon

  • Genre


  • Details

    UK/USA • 2023 • 96 mins

  • Certificate


Made over 6 years, director Jeanie Finlay charts the rise of Aubrey Gordon, from anonymous blogger writing with candour and humour as “Your Fat Friend”  to NYTimes best-seller and beloved podcaster, talking about what it means to be a very fat woman in the world. Her aim? Bringing about a paradigm shift in the way that we view and treat fat people.

This isn’t about “body positivity” co-opted by brands to sell fat-kinis to size 16 women, it’s about bringing about a paradigm shift in the way that we treat fat people and the fat on our own bodies. It has brought her an insatiable worldwide audience, and threats to her life.

YOUR FAT FRIEND, finding a place in the world when you don’t quite fit.
