Ever had a dream that seemed crazy, but you pursued it anyway? Watch Part I of our Nike Women Marathon Project video series featuring Catherine Li made in partnership with Nike Los Angeles. A powerful reminder that we are stronger than we believe and that the triumph of achievement is not easy, but always worth it.
Darling, in association with Aerie, proudly presents “self(i.e.),” a feature-length documentary about the search for self-esteem in a retouched world.
Featuring over 80 interviews with influential women from age 8 to 80, the film explores the history and impact of retouching, as well as the dangers of its unchecked use in social media. As the number of eating disorders, mental health diagnoses, and body image issues skyrocket, “self(i.e.)” will present a hopeful alternative to impossible fake standards; one found only by rising up together to celebrate our real beauty.
Including interviews with Debby Ryan, Ingrid Nilsen, Iskra Lawrence, industry experts and the executive teams of Darling & Aerie, "self(i.e.)" will launch first with a 10-part promotional series in Fall 2017.
