Body-image advocate Taryn Brumfitt is a best-selling author and speaker, and the film director behind break-out documentary EMBRACE (2016). This time she’s talking to school-aged kids and famous friends about body image, bullying, gender identity, advocacy, representation and more. Featuring Taryn’s network of well-known celebrity friends including Celeste Barber, Jameela Jamil, Electric Fields, along with Chico the family dog, EMBRACE: KIDS brings together a vibrant collection of stories and voices to entertain and inspire kids and parents alike, showing us that the first step in changing the world, is changing your own mind. Filmed in Australia and throughout the world, with the support of Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation.

From Director Taryn Brumfitt:

“EMBRACE: KIDS” is the next step in our Embrace journey. In recent years I’ve been sent thousands of messages pleading with me to make a film like Embrace, but for kids. Recent studies suggest that body image is the no.1 issue effecting our children and we want to be part of the solution.

 

It’s alarming and heartbreaking that kids are being held back by how they feel about their bodies. Imagine giving kids the tools to move, nourish, respect and enjoy their bodies instead. EMBRACE: KIDS explores the relationship children have with their bodies, why so many boys and girls hate their bodies and what we can do about it. The film covers topics including social media, photoshopping, ‘fitspiration’, the influence of media and advertising on body image and role models.” 

Rating: G (Very mild coarse language and references to bullying and discrimination)
Recommend 12 years + (Parents of younger children are encouraged to come without children on first viewing).
Duration: 79 mins
