Body Image

Documentary: July 2008: 30 mins.

A community project funded by Arts Pulse Rotherham.

Over a period of 8 weeks I was asked to work with a group of young women from Kiverton Youth group, looking at female body image in the media. We looked at many aspects of this and documented the process with video camera’s.

The footage was taken by the us all as we progressed along a very wonderful course. At the end of the course the girls felt so much more positive about themselves and their body image. We then edited the footage into a short film for the participants and funders for their private use only.
