Young People & Body Image
Covering a variety of pressing issues surrounding body image and role models, this is an informative and eye-opening film for teenagers.
Featuring a host of opinions and ideas from young people at the Teenage Cancer Unit in Leeds and pupils at Scalby School in Scarborough, we hear about how a variety of factors including fashion, money and music can influence a young persons lifestyle and determine what ‘category’ they fall into. Celebrity discussion is hot on the agenda, with a strong message being put forward towards dieting and body image, particularly the ‘size zero’ culture. With the general opinion being to “never change who you are for anyone else”, this is a real insight into how young people feel about themselves.
