Embrace Documentary Film
Wednesday 29th November at York St John Fountains Learning Centre, 6pm for 6.30pm, tickets available online at Eventbrite
Kyra and York St John University are delighted to present EMBRACE, a social impact documentary that explores the serious issue of body image.
Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.
A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is one woman’s story. It tells how Taryn Brumfitt went from a body hater to a body lover; from being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see.
The screening will be followed by a Question and Answer session with the following specialists:
Dr Beth T. Bell, Senior Lecturer at York St John University, specialist in adolescent body image
Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith, Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University, specialist in body image and pregnancy
Dr. Glen Jankowski, Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University; specialist in the impact of culture and systems on body
