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.

Join us for a screening of: The Illusionists, a documentary about the marketing of unattainable beauty around the world, followed by a Q&A with film maker, Elena Rossini. No registration required.
