Showing of “Embrace”, Weds 25th April, 6.30 pm
Embrace is a documentary about body image, released in early 2017. It has had amazing reviews, and tackles head-on the shocking statistic that 90% of women are dissatisfied with their bodies and look, further disheartened by the promotion of the “perfect look” and the influence of social media. Locally, the group “Wonders of Whimple” have been supporting the Body Image Movement through fund-raising to buy licences to show “Embrace” in local schools. We are delighted to benefit from this, and our screening will be next Wednesday, 25th April, in Post-16. Refreshments will be provided. There is no charge for coming, but donations will be collected for the Body Image Movement to pay for a licence for another Devon school. Students are welcome to come, but as there is some nudity and bad language the film has a 12A certification. If you would like to check it out first, there is a variety of clips, trailers, reviews and comment if you put “Embrace film” into a search engine.
