Embrace: The Movie
In 2013, Australian photographer Taryn Brumfitt almost broke the internet with an unconventional "before" and "after" photo of herself. The image was seen by more than 100 million people worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy.
After the birth of her first child, Brumfitt was horrified by her appearance, and embarked on a stringent regime of diet and exercise. Two children later, she posted the "after" photo of her new body — round, naked, natural and bearing the obvious signs of motherhood.
Brumfitt was swamped with emails — some condemning her for "letting herself go," but many more inquiring how she had learned to love her body.
7000 emails later, Brumfitt decided to create a movie about body image, diversity and self-acceptance. Written and directed by Brumfitt, and partly crowd-funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Embrace follows Taryn's crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.
Mirasol is trying to bring this important movie to Tucson!
