We recently saw this moving trailer on Upworthy.

If this message strikes a chord with you, you can show the love with even just $1 toward the documentary Embrace.

With pledges from celebrities Rosie O’Donnell, Ashton Kutcher, Perez Hilton, Ricki Lake and Zooey Deschanel, it’s clear that Embrace is a documentary of worldwide importance.

A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is Taryn’s story. How she went from a body hater to a body lover. From being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see.

From Taryn, the director of this project:

In order to make Embrace the best documentary it can be, any additional funds we receive will go directly to the purchasing of music rights, sound mixing, visual and digital effects and editing suite hire. Any contribution you can make, big or small, would be heartfeltly welcomed and greatly appreciated. Together we can create global change.

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
