Coming Spring 2017
“Maris Degener is an old-souled hero born from the strength of a young, fighting spirit. She’s a yogi. She’s a teacher. She’s an inspiration to her students, to the young girls she mentors, and to the thousands who follow her on-line. And she’s only 17.
Unlike other films that focus on the horrors of eating disorders and tend to conclude with relapse or death, this film has a hopeful and helpful point-of-view. Maris’s victory and wise-beyond-her years self-awareness becomes our inspiration to embrace our full and faulted selves and live with fearless authenticity. Like Maris, we are all works in progress.”
A film about mental illness, the healing powers of yoga, and ultimately about self-acceptance.
Directed by Laura VanZee Taylor
Starring Maris Degener
