Taryn Brumfitt first made headlines after posting a before-and-after photo and saying she preferred the way she looked after having a baby than the photo of her on stage at a figure competition:
In the years since that side-by-side photo went viral, Brumfitt has traveled the world talking to women about body-image struggles. Those experiences turned into Embrace, a feature-length documentary of “one woman’s journey to inspire every body.”
There’s just one problem: The trailer can only play before movies intended for mature audiences because censors said it shows too much nudity. But the two-minute teaser (you can check it out below) doesn’t show any more skin than the lingerie ads we see on TV all the time.
These kind of roadblocks are part of the reason it’s so hard to talk about body image and beauty standards—and even more reason to share this trailer.
