Edmonton, Canada – August 21, 2018 – On the heels of the movie by Amy Schumer, I Feel Pretty, Kelly Falardeau realizes the similarities of the underlying message between Amy Schumer’s recent DVD release and her own personal Still Beautiful Documentary. The 2 similarities are that they both have a ‘talking mirror’. One says positive words of affirmation, filling Schumer’s character with positive thoughts and feelings and the other mirror displayed in Falardeau’s Still Beautiful Documentary says mean words, such as “Ugly Scarface Girl”.
The cost of those negative words is constant anxiety, judgement, rejection, addictions to Botox, alcohol, drugs, prescription meds, harmful cosmetic surgeries and outrageous amounts of money to change ourselves so we can look beautiful on the outside.
One study found 94% of all teenage girls, and 64% of teenage boys have been shamed for the way their body looks.
The good news is that women are waking up and fighting back! Rockstar Artist P!NK, stated to her daughter during her acceptance speech at the VMA’s regarding how the world sees us, “We don’t change. We take the gravel and the shell, and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty”.
Worldwide movements are being created like #metoo, #bodypositivity #stillbeautifulmovement and the #embracemovement which are helping women to stand up for themselves and be accepting of who they are, as they are. Her Still Beautiful Documentary Facebook page hosts a wealth of positivity, support and reviews of her documentary as well.
Falardeau has graced international stages sharing her story and inspiring people of all ages to reexamine their relationship and perspective to beauty. Falardeau says in the documentary while speaking to 3000 teens: “The mirror can’t talk. The mirror doesn’t have feelings or emotions, I was the enemy, not the mirror…”
Her documentary shows that you don’t have to be a beauty queen to be beautiful. It follows her journey of getting burnt as a two-year-old and hating what she saw in the mirror to loving what she saw.
Falardeau would like to create a positive ripple effect with her documentary by launching it in the United States and eventually worldwide.
The end goal for Falardeau is to make a positive impact on as many lives as possible through her documentary, books and public speaking to help diminish body shaming by creating healthier people that have mastered the art of true self love and acceptance for themselves.
