The ironically critical film „Club Zero“, directed by Austrian filmmaker Jessica Hausner, had its world premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival and is currently available for viewing on the KinoKouch Free Zone (Slobodna zona) platform. This film indirectly addresses eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. However, its focus extends to the loneliness and insecurity of young people, which paves the way for manipulation.
„Club Zero“ further prompts an examination into the phenomenon of parents readily transferring their responsibilities to educators, potentially subjecting their trust to exploitation. The film prompts reflection on how precisely five children transitioned from a basic necessity like food to a practice of abstention.
