AUDIENCE REACTION

“I LOVED THIS FILM!”

“I’m one of the co-founders of Opal, the treatment center in Seattle that just did a screening of The Student Body last night. I LOVED this film!!! I’m so inspired by Bailey’s tenacity, your advocacy, and your bravery to face uncomfortable situations to support a movement that you believe in.”

“You go girl!  What a gift you have to fight for social justice issues…I can’t wait to continue to spread the word about your film.”

Kara

“A WONDERFUL, POWERFUL FILM.”

“I am so glad I had the opportunity to bring it to Davis, California. I want EVERYONE to see it.  Wow!!!  I LOVE this movie!!!”

“Bailey, you are so inspiring.  As a mother and teacher, I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have my daughter and 6th graders see this movie and witness your persistence, cleverness, research, visuals that explain things so well, your sense of humor, etc. I want to see it again!”

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. Keep up the fantastic work.  You are a force to be reckoned with.  This is a wonderful, powerful film.”

Elis

“BEAUTIFULLY DONE”  “FUNNY AND THOUGHTFUL”

“We are an eating disorder clinic in the University District of Seattle, WA. We first heard about The Student Body from a local therapist who asked us to take on the screening.”

“Bailey, you were so great! We were so inspired by your tenacity and passion.  The film is so beautifully done! It is funny and thoughtful, and also shows the pain that many go through in their struggle to find peace with their bodies. We saw this just as much with the adults you interviewed as the children.”

“Thank you so much for following your heart on this topic and bringing this issue to the world.”

“A WONDERFUL DOCUMENTARY”

My daughter and her Girl Scout Troop brought The Student Body to Sacramento last night.  What a wonderful documentary that prompted so much discussion directly after the movie and today on our Facebook page.  

Our Troop just finished up a Journey where they explored issues affecting girls (and boys) and also what Action girls can take to make a difference. This film culminated their Journey as a way to publicly share their learning and experience.   So many attendees commented on the engaging, excellent filmmaking and also on Bailey with her perseverance and voice for so many young people.

Thank you, Mike Webber, for giving our Girl Scout community so much fodder for discussion. And thank you, Bailey, for being an inspiration not only to our girls to stand up and take Action, but to young people everywhere.  Kudos Webber Family and The Student Body!

“INFORMATIVE, INSPIRATIONAL AND ENTERTAINING.”

The documentary is amazing.  This should be shown at high schools across the country.

Donna

“BEYOND AWESOME ON SO MANY LEVELS!”

“So well done! LOVE Bailey’s humble attitude and lack of snarkiness through her perseverance. So effective and great inspiration for our girls and me!”

KC

“SO MANY GREAT TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS FILM”

For young people: inspiration to take action rather than accept powerlessness and defeat.  For lawmakers:  a warning of the harms that can come from slapping shortsighted “fixes” on complex problems.  For young parents of strong-willed children:  proof that this (often maddening) trait really can be a great thing one day.  And for anyone at all:  A reminder that compassion and patient persistence are so much more effective than divisive antagonism.  

I loved Bailey’s approach so much!
