You may or may not have heard of the ‘Body Image Movement’ (www.bodyimagemovement.com), an initiative launched by Australian Taryn Brumfitt, who is on a quest to end the global body-hating epidemic. Her work is helping women to accept and feel better about themselves, and challenges the idea perpetuated by the media that external beauty = everything.
A Global Ambassador for the Body Image Movement has been enabled to host a special one-off local screening of ‘Embrace’, the powerful documentary that Brumfitt made whilst traversing the globe to talk to women about this issue. The film launched successfully in Australia and the US in the summer and is now finally coming to the UK in early 2017. The trailer of the film can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8vnaRiF_-U
The local screening is scheduled for 18 January 2017 at 6.30pm at Odeon Chatham and is the only one scheduled in Kent at this time. As an independent film, tt won’t go on general release and is therefore being crowdfunded, meaning that as long as a certain number of tickets are reserved then the screening can take place.
If you wish to reserve a ticket please do so asap via this link https://tickets.demand.film/event/1316, as the number needs to be reached by 7 January 2017 in order for the screening to go ahead.
This is a very relevant and important film for everyone to see, so please do spread the word far and wide!
