Burn survivor’s journey comes to Oak Bay big screen

Documentary details Kelly Falardeau’s path to motivational speaking, authorship

A documentary aiming to inspire confidence is coming to a Greater Victoria theatre next month.

Still Beautiful, which tells the story of burn survivor Kelly Falardeau, plays July 2 at the Dave Dunnet Theatre in Oak Bay.

“This documentary gives people permission to feel beautiful, even though they aren’t perfect,” Falardeau said in a news release. “There are too many people that look in the mirror and say, ‘Yuck, who is going to love that?’ It’s time to change the dialogue.”

The film follows her journey to becoming a motivational speaker and best-selling author.
