)-- Local Women Take a Stand Against ‘Bikini Bodies’, ‘6-Pack’s and ‘Perfection’ - On a mission for global change to help women love their bodies.
EMBRACE, the Documentary Movie Screening, Tuesday, September 20, 2016
91% of women hate their bodies. Fat, ugly disgusting, worthless, useless, inadequate, unlovable, embarrassing, hopeless, rejected, angry, frustrated, miserable - have you ever felt this about yourself? You are not alone. It’s time to EMBRACE your body and this documentary is going to show the world how.
When Body Image Activist Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photo in 2013 it was seen by more than 100 million people worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy. EMBRACE follows Taryn’s crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies. After 24 months of travelling, interviewing, production and post production Taryn and the Embrace team have created a film that is relevant, relatable, highly engaging – but above all life changing.
Rosie O’Donnell, Ashton Kutcher, Ricki Lake, Zooey Deschanel and Perez Hilton all supported EMBRACE the documentary and on Monday September 19 it makes its US debut. Screenings of this documentary are happening all across the United Sates – encouraging women locally and globally to embrace and love their body.
