Film screening tonight: America the Beautiful

Does America have an unhealthy obsession with beauty? The ubiquitous deceptions by advertisers and the media, that thin, beautiful models set the standard to which all women must aspire, has been identified by some as a primary cause of low self-esteem and the meteoric rise in clinical depression in women. Filmmaker Darryl Roberts traveled around the country talking to models, makeup artists, entertainment industry insiders and social commentators to try to answer this question: Does America have an unhealthy obsession with beauty?

Tonight, filmmaker Darryl Roberts is bringing his new documentary, America the Beautiful to campus. Mr. Roberts will be discussing his work after the screening. Please join us for a great film and some stimulating conversation at 7:30pm in McCormick 1o1.

Sponsored by the Eating Concerns Advisers, The Women's Center and the Vice President for Campus Life.

I'd love to see this - wish I was on campus for it! Can someone who does see it do a post on the blog about it?
