UPDATE TO STATEMENT: WE HAVE WATCHED THE DOCUMENTARY AND WILL BE WRITING A FULL REVIEW. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE MANY BIASES EXHIBITED IN THIS FILM THAT WE WERE UNAWARE OF BEFORE OUR PARTICIPATION TOOK PLACE. AT THAT TIME, WE WERE NOT EDUCATED ENOUGH TO ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. STAY TUNED FOR A FULL REVIEW.
Hello Bold Readers,
It has come to our attention that there has been some controversy about the trailer to the documentary called Fat-tTopia. At first glance, we are concerned that this project and its filmmaker have decided to shed a negative light on the fat-acceptance and plus size communities, and there may be others who have not consented to their video being used.
We were interviewed for this documentary a year ago when we were under the impression that this was to start a positive dialogue and accurate introspective into the body positive world. We certainly do hope that this is still the case, however it is difficult to tell from the trailer and there are some cues that it may not be as we continue to do research.
We at Bold Media Incorporated just wanted to go on the record to say that it was never our intention to lend our voice or our experiences to any project or any individual seeking to denigrate this community. We have asked for an advanced copy of the film so that we can further comprehend the intentions of the filmmaker and the story being told. Thank you.
