Why The Breast Archives Matters
When a woman has a positive attitude and connection to her breasts—a source of both nourishment and pleasure—she is more apt to respect her natural self, listen to her inner wisdom, and ultimately achieve healthy mental, physical and spiritual development.
Viewers get to know nine unforgettable women, ages 32-68, who boldly bare their hearts and breasts to the camera, candidly revealing tender memories of puberty, shaming, sexual pleasure, nursing and the individual journeys they’ve made in reclaiming their breasts. The women are in turn humorous, reflective, and good-natured about their bodies and how they relate to them mentally and emotionally.
Through the power of personal narrative, the film offers a frank examination of our culture and its subjective effects on our lives, and becomes a vital injection of the radical compassion we all thirst for.
