Kino Weltsichten presents My Skinny Sister| MIN LILLA SYSTER

My Skinny Sister | Min lilla Syster (D: Sanna Lenken)

This film demonstrates in a sensitive and authentic manner how an eating disorder can impact an entire family.

Stella usually gets on well with her sister Katja even though most of the time everything revolves around her talent as a figure skater and Katja has little time for her younger sister Stella. But suddenly, Katja is often cold and mean to Stella. At first, the family doesn't notice that Katja's illness is becoming increasingly life-threatening. Only Stella intuitively understands the problem and tries to broach the matter with her parents. Katja reacts with mean threats. But before long, the responsibility is too much for the younger sister to bear
