The film One More Bite is a story about addiction. It is based on a true story of a patient with an eight-year history of eating disorders. The film is from the perspective of a bulimic woman’s struggle with food, family, and love relationship. One More Bite is not a documentary or educational video on eating orders; rather, it focuses more on a unique individual’s experience. More specifically, it shows the struggles in the protagonist’s spiritual world from the subjective perspective of a patient with eating disorders. It is about abstinence and release, balance and imbalance, and perfection and collapse.
My original intention of making this film is that I hope more people will notice and understand this marginal group, and at the same time, to encourage more people like the protagonist to learn to accept who they are. I hope to use my work to reflect their mental world and to listen to their voices. I don’t expect every audience to emphasize 100%, but I hope this movie can improve everyone’s understanding and tolerance of this group. In addition, as a filmmaker and also a woman, I hope that we can boldly accept our own desires, whether they are appetite, lust, sexuality or other, boldly accept our own bodies and appearances, and boldly explore diverse aesthetics so that in the end, we can be confident and strong enough to block those “thorns” from the world.
