Body Image is Focus of New Film
Sponsored by Mind-Body Health Coach Caroline Pascual, RN, the documentary film Fattitude will be screened at 6:45 p.m., August 21, at the Byrd Theater. The movie will be followed by a Q&A with director Lindsey Averill and filmmaker Viridiana Lieberman.
“Fattitude examines how popular culture perpetuates the fat hatred and fat-shaming that results in a very real cultural bias and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies,” says Averill. The dynamic team of Averill and Lieberman both possess the filmmaking, writing, editing and production skills to relay the complex reality of fat prejudice in Western culture.
Tickets are $25. Location: 2908 W. Cary St. For more information, visit FattitudeTheMovie.squarespace.com.
