“In an effort to address the obesity epidemic, notification letters are being sent to students whose body mass do not fall within a narrow range deemed “acceptable” by the government; essentially telling children, even as young as kindergarteners, that they are fat.
THE STUDENT BODY is a true underdog story of two brave girls who take a stand against bullying, government intrusion and hypocrisy while exploring the complex and controversial truths behind the childhood obesity debate.”
American Family Association Journal says it is “Extraordinary. The film is both inspiring and challenging.”
Common Sense Media calls it “enlightening” and a “tribute to student journalism and the power of investigative reporting.”
