An important documentary examining body image issues, especially among women, as activist Taryn Brumfitt travels around the world to interview experts, celebrities and activists. This is a special screening organised by SWCHS with reduced ticket costs. All money raised from ticket sales will be used to support student wellbeing projects. 

This documentary follows Australian activist Taryn Brumfitt’s crusade as she explores the issue of body image and its effect on us. We join her as she traverses the globe 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. Essential viewing.

Embrace is groundbreaking, not just because it disrupts what media in all its forms tells us about how we should look, but because it actually cuts through the noise of the “we’re all great” rhetoric, and manages to strike a chord, intelligently and with meaning. Embrace will give you critical perspective and inspire you to stop hating on yourself so much, to stop being so self-obsessed, and to just live your damn life. It will also have you craving a double cheese burger really badly. Embrace is very important viewing for, literally, everyone.  Sophia Watson, Filmink
