Let's hear it for director Mandi Lynn (pictured) who is filming her body-positivity documentary Finding Venus, around the country now. Lynn and her dedicated team, which includes Amber Marie Naveira and Belinda Pflaum (co-producers), Nina Wells (director of photography) and Sarah Munn (first assistant director) received a $10,000 Fresh Shorts grant from the New Zealand Film Commission. The film features gold painted, bare-breasted women volunteers, and is about recognising and celebrating the diversity of female body shapes in our communities, a counterpoint to the 400-600 photoshopped images we see each day. We can't wait to see it!
