The Women's International Film Festival will present The Breast Archives

March 10 at Village East Cinema in New York City

Let's Talk About Breasts

The Breast Archives uncovers nine women’s personal stories of empowerment. Baring their breasts and their hearts, the women share the unique journeys they’ve made with their bodies. From their formative years of hiding, shame, and disconnection, to adulthood and the discovery of what it means to be a powerful woman. As the women slowly reconnect with their body-based stories they find a reservoir of strength and wisdom that lies within their breasts.

Real Women. Real Stories.
The journey is empowerment.

the trailer

Viewers get to know nine unforgettable women who boldly bare their hearts and breasts to the camera. As women, our relationships with our breasts profoundly influence our identities and lives, yet we don’t talk about them.

What would happen if we did?

“A POWERFUL, DARING AND IMPORTANT film for all women to witness and bond with because it empowers us to honor our own bodies.”

"The Breast Archives is a MUST SEE! With its openness, courage and authenticity, it creates an opportunity to empower, engage and enlighten a new generation."

Anita Fritz, Editor, The Greenfield Recorder


"The film delves into topics like eating disorders, trauma, and assault, but does so with care and deference. Most importantly, the film situates bodily self-hatred as an important and little-discussed aspect of women’s history. By illuminating this centuries-long shared trauma as a sickness passed down from generation to generation, The Breast Archives attempts to break the cycle."

Lena Wilson, Arts and Entertainment, The Valley Advocate


"The Breast Archives captures the tenderness, anxiety, pride and wisdom of women, and offers an opening for healing conversations about women's real, rich lives."  

Sid Reger, President, Assoc. for the Study of Women and Mythology

We can't bring The Breast Archives to audiences without your help!
