Truly Deeply Beautiful – A true celebration of women

A collaboration with Esoteric Women’s Health, Truly Deeply Beautiful is RMRC’s first short documentary film. Originally screened at the MEDIA THAT CONNECTS events in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, Truly Deeply Beautiful has since been screened at various events around the country. While it examines the realities of living as a woman today it also highlights how through simple self-nurturing choices we can affect profound and lasting change. Added to this, the film naturally claims back the power of real representations of women in the media.

Northern Star coverage of the conference:

EXPERTS on social media are addressing a crowd of people at the cyber-bullying in our Communities conference at Lismore’s Southern Cross University today.

About 100 people are gathered in the universities Whitebrook Theatre to listen to legal, research, social media, psychology and community perspectives on what the issues are surrounding and what action can be taken.

Social media specialist Tricia Munn, who educates schools and businesses on social media, said the explosion in children using social media has contributed to the increase in cyber bullying.

“Bullying itself is not a new thing but certainly since the introduction of social media the number and the phonon omen of children being on social media is making cyber bullying a real problem.”
