Dir: Taryn Brumfitt | Australia | 2017 | 90 mins
In this affecting documentary, director and activist Taryn Brumfitt investigates the growth of body image disorders in the social media era and why, for women in particular, it has become almost impossible to accept ourselves the way we are. Decrying the unrealistic expectations inculcated into women by the media and its continuous sexualisation of young girls, Brumfitt shows how corporations prey on female insecurity for financial gain. Interviewing experts and celebrities, as well as a severe burns victim and an eating disorder sufferer, Brumfitt’s inspiring film aims to instigate change in the lives of women worldwide. Essential viewing.
