A Letter to You Synopsis
Four young women of color, their struggles with beauty standards, and their journey towards self-love and collective empowerment.
Our film focuses on highlighting the negative effects of beauty standards on young women of color while deconstructing it as well. We want to effect change with our film campaign by empowering youth to embrace who they are and not fixate on what society wants them to be.
As a society, it is our duty to encourage self-love and acceptance at a young age — to develop a healthy relationship between girls and their self-esteem.
We hope that through this film we create a social movement called “A Letter to Us”, where people who have struggled with beauty standards and self-love write letters to themselves. We hope that this movement can spark change in how beauty standards are used in our world today.
