Thinspiration is part of the 'Coming Up' drama thread run by Channel 4 which showcases new dramas written and directed by young and up and coming new talents. This particular crop of shows is being broadcast as a part of the channel's 'Generation Next' season.
A story about anorexia set in the seventeenth century. Eva and Anna are young novices at an austere convent. When Anna takes the Lenten fast to extremes, her piety captivates the other nuns. That's when wild rumours about her holiness begin to spread.In an effort to save her friend's life, Eva is forced to confront the culture that condones such hysteria.
By setting the story in a time and a place that is not familiar to a modern day audience, it forces the viewer to focus in on what it means to be an anorexic in terms of the pressures that they face over food, without the distraction of modern day society interupting into the story.
Written by Ruth McCance
Directed by Harry Burton
