A brief discussion of the themes follows each screening.
About the films: These two films explore the concepts of beauty through race, gender and nationality. The Color of Beauty is a shocking documentary that examines racism in the fashion industry through the story of Renee Thompson, a Black fashion model in a world where White women are the standard of beauty. Woman Being examines the changing concepts of beauty and sexuality for women in modern China and shows how Western pop culture is affecting their expectations and self-worth.
About the Social
Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center
for Cultural Pluralism, the Fall 2013 Social Justice Film
Series theme is "Interrogating the Intersections Of" and offers
participants an educational opportunity to explore through
film and subsequent discourse and engage issues of identity in
its various intersections. Films selected for the Social
Justice Film Series have one viewing and are generally
screened up to a half hour and followed by an engaged
discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful
of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational
program does not exceed ninety minutes.
