“Light,” the new film by Caroline Treadway, reveals the hidden world of eating disorders in professional rock climbing as the filmmaker follows two best friends on their harrowing journey in a courageous narrative that breaks the silence about the sport’s darkest secret.
Angie Payne, Emily Harrington, Andrea Szekely and Kai Lightner share their struggles and insights in this original documentary about the quest for lightness and its dangerous legacy.
