Special Screening: Embrace

November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

EMBRACE: Special screening taking place on Friday 17th November at Lympstone Village Hall.

Ruth Harvey (registered dietitian and the owner of Gray’s Nutrition) and Lympstone Pre-School are hosting a screening of the film ‘Embrace’.

Embrace is a documentary-style film about one woman’s journey to make peace with her body shape after babies, and her mission to help others be more accepting of body diversity, and to be happy within their own skin. The film looks at the ill effects a negative body image can have on a person’s wellbeing. The film is classified 12A, but please speak with us if you would like to bring anyone under 16 so that wee can tell you about the content, which does contain nudty and occasional strong language.

The film is not just about weight, but includes interviews with women who have suffered life changing events and how they overcame them. If you are a parent this film will help you talk about body diversity with your children, help them deal with bullying and encourage them to place value on what they can contribute rather than placing value merely on their appearance.

Come down at 7pm and enjoy a drink before the screening. Ruth will be saying a few words on why she got behind this project and there will be time for discussion/socializing after the screening. Popcorn will be provided!

Tickets £6 adults, £5 under 16s.

Please purchase tickets in advance from Vicki at pre-school, or email graysnutrition@gmail.com or text 07716 514 487 and your tickets can be emailed or texted to you.

Bar opens 7pm. Film starts 7.30pm.

All proceeds go to Lympstone Pre-School general fundraising.
