Earlier this year we introduced readers to “Absolutely Safe,” a documentary about the safety of breast implants told through the stories of women whose choices intersect with health, money, science and cultural pressures that narrowly define beauty.
Directed by Carol Ciancutti-Leyva, the documentary was screened at a number of film festivals and on college campuses, and it received lots of praise (including from our own Judy Norsigian — Our Bodies Ourselves is one of the film’s main outreach partners).
It is now available on DVD, and the distributor is offering Our Bodies Our Blog readers a 15 percent discount on individual purchases. CLICK HERE and you’ll get $3.75 off the regular DVD price of $24.98. Multiple orders are permitted.
Plus, if you buy the DVD before Jan. 15, Our Bodies Ourselves will receive $3 for every DVD sold. A win-win for everyone.
Check out the trailer below and the “Absolutely Safe” website, which provides excellent background along with information on FDA regulations, statistics on who gets implants, and take-action suggestions — including tips from Our Bodies Ourselves on redefining beauty.
