Love Your Body Week: The Illusionists
6:00pm - 7:00pm EST February 26
Stevens Auditorium, Cushing Hall
The Illusionists is a powerful documentary about the globalization of beauty and the dark side of advertising.
Sex sells. What sells even more? Insecurity. Multi-billion dollar industries saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body hatred from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children. The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.
Light refreshments will be provided.
This event has a Google Hangouts video call.
