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: Redefining Body Image 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: Redefining Body Image 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. This documentary aims to create a healthier dialogue around body “size” and image and educate people on health and representation while capturing a visual slice of life from the fashion industry right now. We expose some of the ugly truths of the fashion and media industries and ask pressing questions of brands, designers, agents, magazine editors, photographers, educators and health experts about “size.”
