Embrace Me

“Embrace Me,” is a short film created by Terri Alise Mims. The film incorporates both videography and poetry. The film title serves a double meaning: while on a self love or discovery journey we are often encouraged to embrace ourselves, while at the same time when looking for love we often have a desire to be embraced by someone we love. The short film is partly documentary while it also serves as a visual poem. The pieces in the film are original pieces by Terri A. Mims, and they are accompanied in the film with some aesthetically pleasing B-roll. The film explores all the different aspects of self-love, self-acceptance, embracing yourself, and being embraced.
