Embrace: the documentary @ Regal Cinemas Timberlyne 6
Oct 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

When Body Image Activist Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photo in 2013 it was seen by more than 100 million people worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy. EMBRACE follows Taryn’s crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.

EMBRACE uncovers why hating our bodies has become a global epidemic and what people everywhere can do to learn to love and celebrate their bodies. It’s a funny, touching, at times gut-wrenching, but above all a life-changing film that encourages all women to embrace their bodies.

Watch the trailer for EMBRACE and learn more about the film here:

We’d love to bring the screening to Chapel Hill, but first, we need a minimum of 65 tickets reserved in advance. If we don’t reach the minimum of 65, your credit card won’t be charged.

Reserve your ticket as soon as you can to help make the screening happen:

Stick around after the film for a Q&A and to connect with your local community of body image activists! To share resources and connect with the movie captain, please contact
