The documentary “All of Me” focuses on the lives of patients with eating disorders who are struggling to regain a sense of self-compassion. Screenings of the Kingdom County Productions film, which profiles the holistic work of the Vermont Center for Integrative Therapy in Burlington, are available by e-mailing director Bess O'Brien at

Topics of importance in the film include body image issues, the lack of connection with one's physical and emotional being, and the need for intensive self-examination to find the factors that triggered the illness.

Beth Mayer, executive director of the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association, said that the film “does a wonderful job of depicting the realities of what having an eating disorder feels like in our society.”
