Colored Qollective * QFFU: Well Rounded & Misdirection
August 27, 2022 @ 15:00 – 18:00
Colored Qollective is hosting this afternoon of 2 film screenings including a ”Queer BIPOC Mental Health Workshop” centered on the question: How can we love ourselves and our communities in a world that continually tells us we don’t deserve this love? This workshop prioritizes queer and trans persons of color.
This documentary will bring you an image that you would most like to see in all movies, what am I saying, in all of society, which is: Being fat is okay! It’s a collection of personal stories from a diverse, interesting cast whose lives can be a great inspiration to people, especially if you don’t always see yourself celebrated on screen. These wonderful stories and interviews are mixed with dreamy animation. On the edge, funny and sometimes tear-jerking. This documentary brings you a strong story that helps fight systemic fat phobias, because you are beautiful just the way you are!
Camila is an average first-year college student with obsessive-compulsive disorder and a huge crush on her roommate.
