Ac­tivist bares all in life-chang­ing doco

Em­brace (PG), April 1, Moonrise Cinema Karartha, 7pm, tick­ets $10-$16. Visit

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 moon­risecin­ and will be avail­able at the ticket of­fice on the night should they not sell out be­fore­hand

Moonrise Cinema is at the TAFE cam­pus off Dampier High­way and is spon­sored by the City of Kar­ratha, Woodside Pluto LNG and Rio Tinto.
