Meet Sabrina, Feodora and Lilly – three very different young women with the same insatiable desire to starve themselves. Once isolated from society by their anorexia, through websites they have now found others like themselves who share the unbridled passion to be thin. Pro-ana forum members swap ideas about living the anorexic lifestyle and support each other in upholding the ‘Thin Commandments’.
This provocative documentary looks at the heart of the recent and terrifying pro-anorexia websites phenomenon which began in America and has moved its way into the UK. As founders claim that their sites provide a comfort and support network for anorexia sufferers, Thin Club investigates the seriously damaging impact that the website images and forums have upon teenage girls. Inspired by ‘thinspirational’ images of celebrities whilst being assigned to an on-line friend to whom all weight-loss ‘progress’ is reported to, many teenage girls are being sucked into the thin club. The websites promote the idea that anorexia is not a disease, but a life choice. A harrowing yet moving documentary, Thin Club reveals a dangerous world that has been hidden until now.
