Our first assignment for the Women Filmmakers class I’m taking at Hampshire College was to create a short slideshow about an autobiographical event that shaped how we construct ourselves with specific attention to gender.
My friend and classmate, Dot, produced a wonderful piece about body positivity. Dot’s piece about body size and normalized images of desire is an honest, frank and candid narrative of the need for positive acceptance of all body sizes. I could go on about how wonderful this short piece is but her work can and does speak for itself.
