An open conversation about sexuality, body image, and self-esteem.

Me in the Mirror is an open conversation about sexuality, body image, and self-esteem. Director Lorena Alvarado "wanted to create a space where people could share experiences about their bodies that were intimate, subjective and at times even contradictory. " The film explores the intimate memories of a group of women; their earliest awareness of sexuality and the negative, self-harming emotions that came attached. The women confess feelings of disgust, shame, and a debilitating inability to explore their own sexuality. Yet they are also actively fighting to shed the societal and personal weight imposed on their body. Alvarado shares her belief, "we are complex beings that are constantly evolving— our opinions and thoughts should not be categorical."
