NEW YORK, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, BALANCE eating disorder treatment center and Student Health Services at The New School are hosting a free, one night only screening of the compelling documentary, All of Me, 6 – 9:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at The New School, Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 W 13th Street, 2nd Floor, New York, New York.

This new documentary film directed by Vermont filmmaker Bess O’Brien focuses on the lives of women, girls and boys who are caught in the downward spiral of eating disorders and their struggle to regain a sense of self-compassion and healing. The film also centers on the parents coping with their children around this devastating disease. The movie gives hope to those suffering from eating disorders and illustrates how people can recover and reclaim their bodies, their emotional connection with themselves and others.

All of Me delves deeply into the often pervasive ways that food, dieting, and body image affect all of us on a daily basis,” said O’Brien. “Many of us may not be diagnosed with an official eating disorder, but struggle with our own histories and insecurities around food and weight.”

All of Me centers on the underlying emotional issues that eating disorders stem from including depression, anxiety, trauma, sensitivity, control, perfectionism, and other mental health concerns.
