Art and film media are one of the main vehicles to express important messages to the public. Many artists have chosen this vehicle to create awareness around eating disorders. We’re proud to feature some of these artists at this year’s Evening Under the Stars… 


Wonderful, Wonderful … a 17-minute short film on Sarah Heer, an adolescent girl who chooses anorexia to fill the void in her life. Willing to risk her friends, family, and even her life for her new obsession, she finds that in the end, her goal for perfection leaves her even more empty. Created and Directed by Trey Chace.
