BODY POSITIVE – My body is my temple

Short film program and discussion

Event Information

Whereas the own body is something we should all be able to have full sovereignty over, women’s and queer people’s bodies are often subjected to opinions, judgement and objectification. A fat body especially is often seen as everybody’s business in a pseudo-attempt to save humankind from obesity. This program is dedicated to the human and female body as the multi-talent tool it is, and most importantly to the power to do as you please with it.
