let’s talk about breasts

The Film

The Breast Archives is a documentary film for women who long to be seen as they are: beautiful, sensually whole, and courageous within their exquisite vulnerability.

In a series of wide-ranging interviews, nine women courageously bare their hearts and breasts, sharing deeply personal stories of puberty, sexuality, mothering, breast cancer, and more.

Their stories are candid, alarming, often hilarious, and surprisingly universal. Through forthright exposure, the film uncovers a mystery that gets at the heart of our expectations about women in western culture.

Be Brave.  Be Seen.  Embody Change.

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

— Irene Sabytko, author and filmmaker

The Project

Do breasts contain an ancient wisdom? That’s the central question of The Breast Archives, a documentary that explores the complex relationship women have with their breasts, and the link between that relationship and an inner, feminine wisdom.

The upshot is an extraordinary and refreshing conversation, and a cinematic inquiry into what becomes possible by simply being seen, as memories, insights and revelations are shared.

As a record of women’s experiences through the lens of the breasts, The Breast Archives becomes a milieu for sharing our breast stories, both good and bad, while allowing women the freedom to reveal themselves safely and with dignity.

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

— Lena Wilson, the Valley Advocate
