Confronting: Taryn Brumfitt investigates the questions of women's body image in the documentary 'Embrace".

Tickets are now available for a special screening of the documentary  Embrace at the Mudgee Town Hall Theatre. 

Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have brighter future. 

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 debut film, Embrace,  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.

Embrace is the most successfully crowdfunded documentary in Australia to date. 

The Mudgee Town Hall theatre screening on Friday, September 30,  is hosted by Karen Wilkinson and Gina Forster.   

Admission is $25. Part of the proceeds will go to Mudgee Community Health. 

The Mudgee screening is arranged through Fan Force and to confirm the screening, the women must sell at least 26 more  tickets before September 23. 

The event starts at 6.15 start for chat and refreshments and the movie starts at 7.30pm.
