The statistics are shocking: eating disorders affect five million people in the U.S., and more than ten percent of those diagnosed with anorexia nervosa will die from the disease. In this documentary, acclaimed photographer Lauren Greenfield documents the faces behind these numbers as she goes inside the Renfrew Center in Coconut Creek, FL - a facility dedicated to helping women overcome eating disorders.

Movie Summary

In 1971, filmmaker Peter Robinson and a small crew entered a world of anarchic madness and healing compassion unlike any other. The resulting film, ASYLUM, records their seven week stay in radical psychiatrist R. D. Laing's controversial Archway Community - a London row-house where the inmates literally run the asylum. Laing's conviction that schizophrenics can only heal their shattered "self" where they're free and yet are held responsible for their actions, challenged patients, doctors and, in ASYLUM's incredible document, the filmmakers, to live communally and peacefully. A documentary treasure built from truthful moments of astonishing tension and grace, ASYLUM takes on a gripping narrative strength usually only seen in fiction.
