Teen Body Image Package
A Monster's Calling
This humorous animated film is about the nature of personal anxieties and body image. An "under-the-bed" monster wanders through a slumbering household. It visits a little girl, then an older brother and finally, the teenaged big sister. What frightens each of them is different: for the big sister, it's the fear of being fat! A film without words.
This 1986 film made by teenagers looks at how young women in high school feel about their bodies and how their self-images are affected by the North American obsession with thinness.
