A Season in Hell

by 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.

quoteSeason 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.
