Summary
BODY TYPED: Perfection in 3 Parts -- a series. BODY TYPED is series of award-winning short films that uses humor to raise serious questions about the marketplace of commercial illusion and unrealizable standards of physical perfection. Wet Dreams and False Images (12 min.) Exposes the art of digital photo-retouching. How do images of perfect female beauty influence men's perceptions of real women? And, how we see ourselves? The Guarantee (11 min.) Teasing, self-perception, cultural identity, and plastic surgery. How would changing our bodies to try to fit an image alter the way we see ourselves? -- Or even who we are? A dancer's hilarious story about his prominent "Italian" nose and the effect it has on his career. 34x25x36 (8 min.) A look at mannequins, religion and perfection. Enter the inner workings of the Patina V Mannequin Factory and see what goes into making "the ideal woman of the moment - in plastic." Recommended for academic and public libraries, Body Typed is an excellent instructional and discussion resource for communication, media, psychology, and gender curricula.
