Welder Center to screen Embrace documentary
Taryn Brumfitt

The Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts will join cinemas across the country on Monday, Sept. 19 to premier the United States release of the documentary film Embrace.

Tickets will be $11 and can be purchased in advance through Gathr.com or at the Welder Center box office starting at 6:30 p.m. The film will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The film will be presented through local crowd-funding organized by Gathr Films.

“Crowd-funding is one of the several options available for community members who are interested in bringing a film to the Welder Center,” said Sue Prudhomme, Victoria College’s executive director of cultural affairs. “We’ll work with individuals to coordinate screening dates and to promote their film events.”

Embrace is told from writer, producer and director Taryn Brumfitt’s point of view as she travels the globe interviewing body image experts, women on the street and personalities like Ricki Lake, Mia Freedman and Amanda de Cadenet about body image issues with people of all body types. Elizabeth Spear, Victoria Texas Independent Film Festival Director, will moderate a discussion at the Welder Center after the screening.

For more information, contact Prudhomme at (361) 485-8540, ext. 2, or Sue.Prudhomme@VictoriaCollege.edu.
