Baring It All: The SCAR Project Documentary
This heart-wrenching yet inspiring documentary puts a human face on the heroism of breast cancer survivors in their 20s and 30s. It follows New York-based fashion photographer David Jay and four brave women - all in different stages of battling the disease - who become subjects of his groundbreaking photographic series, The SCAR Project. By photographing each woman in various states of their treatment and recovery, the nude portraits - that expose more than their scars and baldness - are beautiful, challenging and powerful.
Along with exploring the lives of these young females and their new reality, "Baring It All" shows the impact cancer has had on them and their loved ones and answers what drives them to be photographed at their most vulnerable. Having already gone through such pain and anguish, why are they now revealing themselves to the world in such an honest, raw way? As viewers will discover, the answers to these questions are as unique and brave as the women in the photographs.
