A Perfect 14 Teaser Trailer

"This film explores the controversial term plus-size and the divisive influence it has on society by interviewing designers, 

photographers, standard models, agencies, magazine editors, industry leaders and plus-size pioneers in the meccas of the fashion 

world. It combines the stories of the models with an exploration of the largely ignored topic of weightism, one of the last 

acceptable types of discrimination. Interviewing experts in the field of fat studies and body image, the film also exposes the 

collective unconsciousness of size-based segregation. It also asks the question of the media's responsibility in its single focus 

portrayal of thin role models and how it takes a heavy toll on the self confidence and body image of women.

A Perfect 14 shows the desperate need for diversity and a true reflection of today's society in our media and role models. The 

subjects of the film are determined to eliminate the established perception in society that one size fits all."
