We are delighted to be able to screen this popular and important film again for Whanganui audiences. So for all those who missed our November screening, or for those who would love to see and share the positive messages again, this is your chance.
To make this screening even more wonderful we are delighted to not only be screening it on Valentines day evening - a perfect date movie - but also as a fundraiser for Women's Network Whanganui during La Fiesta.
When body image activist Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photograph in 2013, it was seen by more than 100 million worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy. In her forceful debut, Brumfitt continues her crusade exploring the global issue of body loathing. She travels the world to interview an impressive range of women about their attitudes to their bodies, including: Mia Freedman, the youngest ever editor of the Australian edition of Cosmopolitan; Adelaide researcher Professor Marika Tiggemann; UK talk show host/photographer Amanda de Cadenet; body image blogger Jess Baker (a.k.a. The Militant Baker); and motivational speaker Turia Pitt

Why we are showing this film (again)
In particular this film challenges all sexes to think differently about the popular portrayal of women's bodies in western cultures. It is in fact a wonderful film to share a valentines date with as nothing blows up and there are no quaint scenes of Edwardian England,
Screening again as part of La Fiesta on valentines day evening, with 100% of the ticket sales going to Women's Network Whanganui as a donation from Confluence and Double Farley. This is your chance to feel good and do some good at the same time.
