Global stories, local voices

My Friend Called Anorexia

At 20 years old, Mathilde fell victim to anorexia nervosa. As she puts it today, she "was on the brink of death".

The purpose of this series is to investigate the reality of the illness, through Mathilde’s story, fragments of the diaries she kept while in hospital, as well as interviews with specialists.

Far from clichés, each episode aims to answer these questions: How does one fall into the vicious cycle that is anorexia nervosa? And how can one break free from it?
