HAMBRE: HUNGRY FOR LIFE, 14min., Mexico
Directed by Jean Chapiro
What is hunger? And what do we hunger for?
This personal and poetic documentary explores the journey to overcome anorexia by coming to terms with all that being hungry for life implies. By approaching this concept from a physical, emotional, and spiritual perspective, viewers are invited to partake in this transformative journey. Through the collective voices of a Triathlete, Chef, and Yogi, hunger becomes a medium of empowerment that defies the often portrayed “ ideal” found in magazines, film, and television of what women should look like, who women should be, and what women should strive to hunger for. As a result, Hambre: Hungry for Life offers a lens of acceptance and analysis through which viewers will come to understand that certain forms of hunger are natural, powerful, and extend far beyond craving food.
