every woman has a breast story

She Longs to Share

 

The Film

Warm, complex, and hopeful, The Breast Archives is a film for women who long to be seen as they are: Beautiful, sensually whole, and courageous within their exquisite vulnerability. Nine women from diverse backgrounds discuss their breasts openly and honestly, countering  society’s taboos and shame around breasts.  Reclaim the self-compassion that is your birthright as a woman, and join us as we turn this page together on a new chapter of body empowerment.

Be Brave.  Be Seen.  Embody Change.

"A powerful, daring and important film for all women to witness and bond with because it empowers us to honor our own bodies."

— Irene Sabytko, author and filmmaker

The Project

Both enlightening and entertaining, The Breast Archives asks the question, “What happens when woman are brave enough to bare their breasts—and their hearts—to share the unique journeys they’ve made with their bodies?”

Nine women, aged 30 to 70, candidly reveal memories of adolescent shame and confusion, the delights of first intimacies, experiences of sexual tension, anxiety about breast cancer, and the influence of media, religion, and society on their self-worth and physical and emotional development.

The film offers a frank and bold examination of this cultural influence across race, class, religion, age, and gender and provides a vital compassion we all seek. By exposing themselves, these nine women expose and challenge us all. The Breast Archives creates an opportunity to engage, empower, and enlighten.

"The Breast Archives is like a warm conversation between you and nine of your closest friends."

— Lena Wilson, the Valley Advocate
