Body Of Water


Scottish-born writer-director Lucy Brydon’s deeply impactful debut Body of Water explores the impact of an eating disorder on a family. Following another round of treatment for chronic anorexia, Stephanie quickly realises on her return home that her ‘normal’ life is far from the perfect harmony she had hoped for. The strains are apparent as Stephanie works to balance her relationships with her supportive, but preoccupied, mother and her resentful teenage daughter. With compassion and honesty, Brydon carefully picks apart the complex and emotional damage that comes with trying to keep your head above the water.

Lucy Brydon is an alumni of the 2013 EIFF Talent Lab and was selected the following year for the EIFF Network programme for Body of Water’s early development (known as Sick(er) at that stage). Here she met the film’s producer Dan Cleland.

Please note: this film addresses the topic of eating disorders.
