Event description

Description

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 image
