What happens when women talk openly about their breasts? The answer is beautiful.

85% of women are unhappy or ashamed of their breasts, robbing them of their feminine power and self-esteem. But what happens when a woman has a positive attitude and connection to her breasts - the life-giving source for food and pleasure?

From puberty through motherhood, menopause, and sometimes cancer, nine women speak candidly about their breasts in this daring and beautiful film by Meagan Murphy. With disarming honesty, their stories are at once enlightening and healing.

Anyone who has breast cancer or who knows someone with cancer will be grateful these brave women shared their journeys and that the film offers a roadmap for more conversations to happen at home, in the classroom and in the bedroom.

“I felt ashamed the moment my breasts started to come in because I thought they weren’t ‘normal.’ For years, I tried to hide behind tight bras and in the dark so no one would notice what I thought was an abnormality. I felt ugly and ashamed of my body. I wish my mother, or any trusted woman, would have talked to me about my breasts when I was young. She would have saved me years of shame and helped to boost my self-esteem."

The Breast Archives is a beautiful, insightful and transformative movie for any woman who has her own breast story living inside her.
