Fattitude is a feature length, full-color, documentary film that examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies. Fattitude is the brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman – self-proclaimed pop-culture junkies with academic feminist backgrounds. A dynamic team, Averill and Lieberman possess the filmmaking, scholarly, writing, editing and production skills to relay the complex reality of fat prejudice in Western Culture. Currently, there exists no film that truly examines this issue – an issue that affects not only fat people but also anyone who hates his or her body or anyone who may someday become fat.

Informed by a social justice background, Fattitude is very conscious and attentive to the idea that fat hatred crosses the lines of race, class, sexuality and gender. The film features a diverse variety of voices such as academic scholars, activists, Hollywood types (directors, writers and actors) and psychologists – including the likes of Ricki Lake, Rebecca Phul, Jackson Katz, Marilyn Wann, Sonya Renee Taylor, Virgie Tovar, Jen Posner, Lindy West, Winne Holzman, Guy Branum, Tess Munster, Andrew Walen and others.

Fattitude is the first truly expository film – made by body image activists – seeking to educate and raise awareness in the mainstream populous – or rather the first film to make the argument that fat hatred exists as a culturally unchecked prejudice. Like many filmmakers who focus on social justice issues, it is our hope that Fattitude will gain mainstream distribution and shake the foundation upon which fat hatred is built.
