Well Rounded is a documentary for all the fat, queer, racialized women who so rarely see themselves represented in the media. Here, six female entertainers are given space to share their stories and celebrate their bodies.

Through interviews with fashion-lovers and academics, among them beloved comedian Candy Palmater, Well Rounded discusses the impact of fatphobia, its origins and how we can fight back against it. Topics cover dating, self-esteem, familial support (or lack thereof), medical biases and the societal stigma around being fat, these vibrant women share their traumas and their triumphs without holding anything back.

This entertaining, colourful documentary encourages us all to be proud of our bodies and to love ourselves and one another unabashedly.
