About the film: Ninety percent of women and young girls do not feel represented in the fashion industry or media. Straight/Curve looks at 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, this exciting film 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 film] will change the way you think about yourself!”
