The first trailer for ‘A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story’ has just been released, an inspiring documentary following the journey of a young anti-bullying activist.
After discovering a YouTube video calling her “The World’s Ugliest Woman”, Lizzie Velasquez decided not to let internet bullying get her down, instead choosing to stand up to try to make a change. Her resulting talk at the TEDWomen 2013 conference quickly went viral, and soon Lizzie was plunged into the lime-light as a role model and motivational speaker. This documentary chronicles her emotional journey from the TED talk to Capitol Hill, as Lizzie lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill.

‘A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story’ will premiere at SXSW on March 14th.
