Straight/Curve Redefining Body Image
FREE Movie Night
The Harold C. Schott Foundation Eating Disorders Program at Lindner Center
of HOPE invites you to a FREE movie night to promote body positivity and to
raise awareness about eating disorders.
Community members, professionals, those struggling with eating disorders,
family members and supports are all invited to join the showing of the
documentary “Straight/Curve”. Ninety percent of women and young girls say they do not feel represented in the fashion industry or in media, and that the imagery they consume on a daily basis makes them feel “disgusting” and “less than”. The exciting new documentary Straight/Curve examines the industries and obstacles responsible for this body image crisis and showcases the dynamic leaders fighting for more diversity of size, race and age.
At a time when our brain processes images 60,000 times faster than words, Straight/Curve sets out to change the imagery we are seeing and to bolster a movement that is redefining society’s unrealistic and dangerous standards of beauty to impact society at large.
Following the movie, there will be time for audience discussion moderated by
clinicians from the Harold C. Schott Foundation Eating Disorders Program.
