EMBRACE – THE BODY IMAGE FILM
EMBRACE is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image.
The inspiration for EMBRACE came about after Director Taryn Brumfitt 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 she soon realised 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 had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it made it into the festival directors’ top 5 picks and was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Documentary.
