Activist bares all in life-changing doco
Embrace (PG), April 1, Moonrise Cinema Karartha, 7pm, tickets $10-$16. Visit moonrise.com.au.
Moonrise Cinema is screening the social impact documentary Embrace on Saturday, April 1 at 7pm.
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 Brumfitt’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.
Embrace is told from the point of view of Brumfitt as she crosses the world talking to experts, women in the street, and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types.
In her affable and effervescent style, Brumfitt bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.
After 24 months of travelling, interviewing, production and post-production, Brumfitt and the Embrace team have created a film that is relevant, relatable, highly engaging, and above all, lifechanging.
Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it made it into the festival directors’ top-five picks and was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for best documentary.
Tickets for Embrace are on sale now at moonrisecinema.com.au and will be available at the ticket office on the night should they not sell out beforehand
