ABOUT THE FILM
When challenged by a rival classmate, a high school student is forced to reflect on her character, ideologies, and body image to the amusement of school administration. Writer/director Erika Lobati transforms her memories as a full figured black woman into an engaging and vibrant story. The film explores the inner psychological struggle of self-esteem in the backdrop of a society that fears unconventional beauty.
Post screening conversation with filmmaker Erika Lobati moderated by Lawrence City Commissioner Amber Sellers.
