The Student Body documentary welcomed a packed house in Washington DC at a screening hosted last month by the FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America). Co-Directors Mike and Bailey Webber held a terrific Q&A for students and advisors in the organization.
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences education in public and private school through grade 12. @NationalFCCLA
THE STUDENT BODY is a true underdog story about two brave girls who take a stand against bullying and government hypocrisy while exploring the complex and controversial truths behind the childhood obesity debate. 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. When a determined sixth-grader in Ohio voices her protest against the ‘fat letters’, student journalist Bailey Webber is inspired to take her fight to the highest levels of government.
