Fertile Truths: Nine Short Films About Bodies, Brains, Birth and Bias

  • AGG 358 Gordon Street Guelph, ON Canada (map)

65 min 

Presented in partnership with Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice

This courageous collection of nine micro-documentaries explores themes of body image and weight stigma in the realms of fertility, pregnancy, reproduction and parenting.  Filmmakers worked with RedLab (Re-Visioning Differences Mobile Media Arts Lab) in order to tell stories about their bodies, families of origin and families of the present in dynamic and innovative ways.  Blending story, music, and rich visual materials, the collective impact of these films is a grappling with the stories we carry about ourselves, our bodies and minds, our appetites, and our relationships to reproduction. 

Time: 7:00pm
Venue: AGG
