My Name is Moe [Kabir McNeely, USA, 2022]

My Name is Moe is an American short film that attempts to deal with the very serious and widespread issue of eating disorders. It centres around the eponymous character (played by McNeely himself), an emotionally withdrawn, overweight teen who is in desperate need of encouragement, guidance, and care. His character is visually coded as the troubled outsider by way of black-painted fingernails, constantly plugged-in earphones, and a forlorn countenance frequently enveloped by the hood of his sweater.
