Last year I had the honor of leading a workshop at the annual SHSMD Conference on the use of video for effective storytelling. Among the presenters was Academy Award Winning Filmmaker, Cynthia Wade. I loved having the opportunity to work with Cynthia.
Recently the folks at the “Dove Campaign for Real Beauty” and the Sundance Institute have partnered with Cynthia to develop a documentary short film that addresses the ways in which beauty is being redefined. The end result is SELFIE, an amazing 7-minute look at how young women and their mothers see themselves. Through the use of selfies, the young women and their moms learn to redefine beauty and their self-perceptions. Check out the entire film below:
