Jeff Sterne’s POV documentary labels him a Chubby Chaser in search of “big girl beauty.” But many think his love for fat makes him a pervert.
As he sees it, popular culture has abandoned what was once considered beautiful. The luscious curves and soft bodies he desires have disappeared over the last half century. Now beauty is narrow, sharp and hard – and women always seem uneasy with the fat on their bodies. What changed the ideal?
Chubby Chaser – a hybrid of traditional documentary live-action, collage filmmaking, and cut-out stop-motion animation – reveals life in a tiny subculture, where people like Jeff are considered twisted losers.
