FATTITUDE

Saturday, March 10 at 8 PM   

Doors 7:30; $5 admission.                                                                  

On March 10th, in honor of Women’s Month, Les Femmes Underground International Film Festival (LEFUFF) presents Fattitude, a feature length documentary that examines the representation of the body in media and popular culture. It explores how the term “Fat” is utilized and its negative portrayal through stereotyping. Proceeds raised from this screening will go towards Books for Babes, a literary initiative aimed at providing feminist books to kids in under-resourced communities. We will also hold a panel discussion on women’s body image and how it is represented in media.
