TV host, Actress, Executive Producer and conveyor of TheVimbai.com – Vimbai Mutinhiri alongside BET will be showcasing the documentary ‘Killer curves; Bodies to Die For‘.
The documentary, which is executively produced by La La Anthony, is centered around women who have undergone cosmetic surgeries with breast enlargements and buttocks augmentations as the main focus.
The screening is to hold:
Date: Thursday, August 15th, 2019
Venue: Filmhouse, Imax Cinemas, Lekki
It will present the documentary followed by a round table discussion on the growing popularity of these procedures despite some of the fatal outcomes. The first of its kind in Nigeria, it is apt and very necessary in the current climate, as Cosmetic surgery is gradually becoming an epidemic.
The documentary itself features singer and reality star, K. Michelle as well as other women of colour; sharing raw experiences on their struggles with body image and the need for young women to love their skins and embrace themselves truly for who they are.
Vimbai said, on the reason why she is working with BET on creating awareness:
“Body alteration is a reality we are living with, but it is one who’s truths we continue to sweep under the carpet. If our women are to make guided choices, then it’s important that we create safe places where these conversations can hold; This is what this screening is for me”.
Vimbai’s collaboration with BET on bringing this project to Nigeria through her website, thevimbai.com, is definite to be an exciting one; with an impact sure enough to touch most in the society and start the conversation.
This is an invite only event.
