Lose weight, reduce wrinkles, fight cellulite; we’re constantly told to fight a battle to be someone other than who we are. Women and girls are constantly lead to believe they’re not as good as they should be. And why? Because every day they feel they’re being judged on their appearance and how far away it is from an unachievable ideal.
Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.
At the heart of Embrace is Taryn’s story. How she went from a body hater to a body lover. From being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see. The team follows her 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.
A funny, touching, at times gut-wrenching but above all, life-changing documentary that all women - and all men - should watch!
After the screening, there is room for questions and to have an open discussion. We will present some of the latest developments on the topic since the movie was published and look forward to hearing your opinions!
