Docs to Watch: The Fat Body (In)Visible
Via What Tami Said, The Fat Body (In)Visible is a neat, new, 25-minute independent documentary about fat acceptance and fashion featuring Keena Bowden and Jessica Jarchow. Keena and Jessica share their experiences of people judging their mere existence just because they're fat, becoming empowered through fashion, the intersection of race and fatness, and finding community. Oh yeah, and there are tons of cute outfits!
The film puts into action what Jessica and Keena are talking about—the opening and closing of the film features still frames from the awesome Adipositity Project, which promotes size acceptance through gorgeous photographs of fat physicality (and is mentioned in the film). That means those parts of the movie are Not Safe For Work.
