No Body Is Perfect

Posted by Jill Chivers in Attitudes and Habits, Body Image, Self Care and Self Awareness, Videos

This video made me cry.  It touched something magical and vulnerable within me.

The video was made by an organisation called Pro Infirmis, who work with those who are non able bodied (they call them disabled, a term that seems to be politically incorrect in many circles these days).

This video shows the making of mannequins based on the real bodies of 5 of these disabled people.  It challenged many ignorant assumptions I didn’t even know I was holding.

It’s raw, it’s confronting, it’s beautiful.  I loved it.

And thank you to Bridgette for first bringing this beautiful video to my attention.

      Thanks for sharing this video, Jill! I was very deeply touched by it, too (tears in my eyes as I type this). I didn’t see it when Bridgette originally posted it, so I’m glad I saw your post today.

        Thanks Debbie – me, too. I have watched the video several times, and every time I am moved by it.

      Jill, I cannot thank you enough for sharing this video!
      It is magical, moving, and very real.

      Let us all create healthy appreciation for differences.
      Not only via “Universal Design” (ADA/readily accessible to all), but also individually tailored.

      The master prosthetist/mannikin re-imagineer seems to have the eyes of a craftsman with a genuinely proactive heart and spirit.

      Those closing moments, seeing the smiles of recognition and acceptance in the eyes of those who chose to try something a new way, was moving and inspiring! THANKS.

        hi there – thanks so much for appreciating this video. I, too, found it insightful and moving. And yes, those closing moments when the muses were looking over their mannequins and appreciating them, was very special. So glad you found it as fabulous as I did!
