As “On Beauty” traveled from Los Angeles to New York and cities in between, press around the world praised the film, people and movement.

A recent broadcast featured Rick Guidotti and Margaret Breed in a segment on CBS Evening News.

One of the first reviews came from Matt Fagerholm at RogerEbert.com who called the film “a masterful example of how cinema can serve as a humanizing force in the world.”

The Weekly Flicker featured Rick and his photos in a blog post about how he transitioned from photographing high fashion models to founding Positive Exposure.

It was a dream come true for Sarah Kanney who was interviewed by Cosmopolitan. She told the fashion publication, “I am beautiful, and I need to start believing it. It doesn’t matter who looks at me funny or who tells me that I’m not beautiful because I am.”

Jayne Waithera attended a town hall with President Obama as part of the 2015 Nelson Mandela Washington Fellowship. The president gave a moving response to Jayne’s question about violence against people with albinism in Eastern Africa.

The New York Times story was the one of the top visited, shared and tweeted stories the day it was published. The film also appeared on the front page of CNN.com.

Voice of America attended the Washington, D.C. screening and published a story on their website. The story also appeared on the TV2Africa Youtube channel.

Dozens of other publications covered the film, the film’s stars and the movement including:
