Overview

Ninety percent of young women and girls say they do not feel represented in the fashion industry or in media, and that the imagery they consume on a daily basis makes them feel “disgusting” and “less than.” Straight/Curve: Redefining Body Image examines 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, Straight/Curve: Redefining Body Image sets out to change the imagery we are seeing and to bolster a movement that is redefining our culture’s unrealistic and dangerous standards of beauty to impact society at large.

The film is directed by Jenny McQuaile and produced by Jess Lewis, Jenny McQuaile and Yael Melamede through STRAIGHT/CURVE and SALTY Features. It is executive produced by Jocelyn Diaz, Ross Bernard and Jill Burkhart; Valerie Bishop Pearson serves as producer.
