A documentary that explores how pop culture and the media profit from feeding destructive body images to women and men. Darryl Roberts, the Chicago-based director said, “We traced that after the women’s liberation movement got women the vote, three years later the Miss America pageant was created.” Interviews include Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, industry professionals, plastic surgeons and the first 12-year-old runway model Gerren Taylor. Two Vancouver filmmakers back up many of the themes of Roberts’ film in their documentary on anorexia, No Numbers: Identity Beyond Measure. Sonja Ruebsaat, editor of the documentary, suffered from anorexia from age 13 to 19 because of the images she was exposed to in pop culture. But she says a person has the power to fight for a change.
