A Season in Hellby Walter Brock
An in-depth view of eating disorders
Shot over a period of four years, A Season in Hell is the in-depth story of one young woman's long struggle with eating disorders, anorexia and bulimia. Beginning with Regina's decision at fourteen to diet after a boy's rejection of her because she was overweight, A Season in Hell follows Regina's continuous struggle though high school, college, hospitalization, and an engagement.
Bulletin of The Menninger Clinic
Season offers endless possibilities for discussion and analysis. Further nuances can be caught with each successive viewing. The tape can be used as an excellent teaching or clinical training tape for anyone from middle school to treatment professionals.

This is one of the very best films I've ever used both as film and as a learning tool. It's been a really important experience for my students. They can't stop talking about it...it was the first time my class really opened up.
