My Year After Gastric Bypass

In this intimate portrayal of the effects of weight loss surgery, Jessica Shapiro tells of her changing relationship with food and society in the months after a gastric bypass operation — her last resort to combat severe obesity. The project was a full year in the making, beginning in Fall 2015 the day before surgery and ending after months of dramatic physical and emotional change. Seven Mile worked with cinematographer Gareth Smit who filmed Jessica four times over the course of 2015 and 2016.
