The Breast Archives documentary is a journey into the memories that have shaped the lives of nine unforgettable women, offering insight into the complexities and development of the female psyche. The women are intelligent, candid and topless; of varied age, perspective and breast size. In a series of interviews, the women reveal deeply personal stories of puberty, intimacy, motherhood and breast cancer. Their stories are funny and sad, touching and absurd, and all are told through the lens of the breasts. The Breast Archives will make some people uncomfortable. It will elicit emotions, memories, and provocative conversations among audience members. By exposing themselves, the women expose and challenge all of us.
“Each excerpt made me think so much about my own life, my family, other women, friends…and what I wanted was — more! I felt like I was getting to know each of the women bit by bit in such a fascinating way!!! And through them getting to know myself better.” —Leslie Mason, Cinematographer
