Bombala Embrace Screening


I'm so excited to be bringing Embrace to Bombala.
This empowering film has resonated with so many people on so many levels.
To the Bombala and surrounding communities please gather your friends (Men are welcome too) and join us for a movie night at the RSL and be part of The Body Image Movement.
There will be a goody bag for each person which will include vouchers from certain business in town and down the coast :)
Hope to see many familiar faces there!
Love Zo :)

About the film ~
“EMBRACE is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. The project has been supported by nearly 9000 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to a fundraising trailer I released in 2014, which has now had over 25 million internet views.

The inspiration for EMBRACE came about after I posted an unconventional before-and-after image on the internet in 2013 that sparked an international media frenzy. The image, which embraces body diversity, was seen by over 100 million people worldwide and led to hundreds of interviews and articles. But I soon realized how restrictive 4-minute TV interviews, 800 word articles and 140 characters on Twitter can be. This issue needed a louder voice on a bigger platform, so the idea of creating the documentary EMBRACE was born.” – Embrace Director Taryn Brumfitt

Embrace is told from the point of view of Taryn 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, Taryn bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.
