EMBRACE KIDS

Body Image Movement (SA), SLA Films (SA)

IN PRODUCTION – In the follow-up to her 2016 break-out documentary Embrace, filmmaker, best-selling author and globally heralded activist Taryn Brumfitt turns her lens on the issue of kids’ body image to understand why 70% of Australian school kids consider body image to be their number one concern, and what can be done about it. Primarily targeted at 8-12 year olds, the film will use Taryn’s distinctive filmmaking style to create an energising texture of animation, music, live action, interviews and more guided by body image health professionals Dr Zali Yager (Associate Professor, Victoria University) and Dr Ivanka Prichard (Senior Lecturer, Flinders University). Executive producers are comedian Celeste Barber, actor Teresa Palmer and Natasha Stott Despoja AO, Australia’s former Ambassador for Women and Girls. Producers are Anna Vincent (Embrace, Chasing Wonders) and Bonnie McBride (Demonic, Making a Mark).
