Hokie Wellness presents a Screening of the Documentary "Embrace" on Thursday, March 29, 2018 at the Lyric Theatre with screenings at 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

Embrace is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. The project has been supported by nearly 9,000 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to a fundraising trailer released in 2014, which has now had over 25 million internet views.

Embrace is told from the point of view of Taryn Brumfitt as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her affable and effervescent style, Taryn bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.
