See the documentary that started a movement!
In 2013, Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after image on Facebook which quickly went viral and catapulted her into the media spotlight. In the midst of frenzy, Taryn realized that toxic body shame was a worldwide epidemic. She set out on a global journey to figure out what made so many women hate their bodies, and to explore how body positivity could change the world.
The end result? EMBRACE, a transformative documentary about learning to love your body and empowering the next generation to break free from the cycle of body shame.
