First Trailer for Inspiring Body-Image Documentary 'Embrace: Kids'
"We're not born hating our bodies - it's something the world teaches us." Exactly the truth. Transmission Films in Australia has revealed an official trailer for an inspiring body-image documentary titled Embrace: Kids, the latest from filmmaker / activist Taryn Brumfitt. The film is actually a sort of sequel / follow-up to Brumfitt's first doc, a film called Embrace about embracing your body and accepting its uniqueness. It ended up becoming a breakout hit in Australia, and is connected to her Body Image Movement organization. In this new documentary she's focusing on the kids, asking us to think more about our bodies and how we treat them in a society obsessed with being skinny and pretty and perfect. I'm glad that this doc criticizes social media and influencers, because yes it's necessary to address this. Filled with fun and joy, this vital doc film shows kids how to move, nourish, respect and embrace their bodies. It looks really good! Check it out.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Taryn Brumfitt's doc Embrace: Kids, direct from YouTube:
