Dreaming of Fat Men
A delightful and insightful dinner conversation among five women of size. Why do they love to eat? Do they really all eat for the pleasure of it? In what way can a lobster become a symbol of liberation? Are the men in their lives understanding of their appetites? In the work, the sounds from the animated dinner conversations blend with excerpts from one-to-one interviews with the women to shape lively portraits that defy easy categorizing. Dreaming of Fat Men is the winner of the prestigious 1995 Prix Italia documentary award. Produced for RTE, Radio 1, Dublin, Ireland. Edited version presented by New American Radio. 1993-1994.
