About The Film

Fat is a feature film based on a series of personal essays by writer / director Mark Phinney. As we follow Fat’s main character, Ken (Melvin Rodriguez), we are made painfully aware of the ways being overweight affects every aspect of his life. Ken’s weight affects his health; both physical and mental, his career, his relationships with friends, and his interactions with women. Though tinged with humor, Fat is a real and unflinching look at food addiction.

This film could not have been made without the love, support, and immense talents of the cast & crew as well as numerous friends, family, musicians, artists, and business owners in and around the city of Boston.
