STRAIGHT/CURVE: REDEFINING BODY IMAGE
A documentary about body image and the industry leaders challenging society's unrealistic and dangerous standards of beauty.
Ninety percent of women and young 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”.
The exciting new documentary Straight/Curve 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.

“We want Straight/Curve to be required viewing at every public health and design school.”
– Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
“Straight/Curve isn’t just another film about body image. It provides an empowering look into how to make real change in the fashion industry. These changes can have lasting effects on how women and girls see themselves. The film should be required for high school and college classrooms.”
– Gonzaga University
“In a time when our students are spending more time with media than ever before, it is crucial that they (and we) redefine beauty and reject the unrealistic standards of perfection. Straight/Curve begins this redefinition by taking a critical look at the narrow definition of beauty in the fashion industry. Viewers will leave this film feeling energized to look at themselves and the mediated world around them differently and the impenetrable fashion industry may also join in critically reassessing its values”
– Cedar Crest College
“Straight/Curve offers an inspiring portrayal of how a determined group of people can join together to fight for what’s right, even if it means having to change our whole society and fundamentally how we see the value of other people and ourselves. The film spurred a great discussion on fat activism, stigma, and health equity among the students, researchers, and eating disorders professionals who attended our screening at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.”
– S. Bryn Austin, ScD, Director, Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Boston Children’s Hospital
“Straight/Curve: Redefining Body Image is a film that should be shown on more college campuses, exposed to larger audiences…People, especially a primary college student demographic, should be determined to learn about this issue so we as a whole can be educated and come together to stop it.”
– Her Campus at Bryant University
