Summary
This documentary provides a compelling look at body image issues and the role the media plays in promoting certain ideals for women. It examines eating disorders that have become commonplace in society and looks at the influence of the Barbie doll on young girls. Powerful media images, in particular in the fashion and advertising industry, serve as a backdrop for insights into the virtually impossible and highly dangerous physical goals that so many women strive to achieve. It also explores the new world of modelling in which models in video, film and photographs are sculpted by computer technology presenting images to emulate that are not even totally human. Includes interviews with teenagers and professionals working with eating disorder patients
