RE: WOW! A rare chance to see indie film The Illusionists
The Illusionists Documentary, 6pm, 29th April at Storyhouse Tickets £6
As part of the Women of the World festival, Storyhouse are giving us a rare chance to see the much-acclaimed independent film The Illusionists.
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 Toyko. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children. The Illusionists turns the mirror on the media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.
A must see documentary about commercial culture and the globalization of beauty. Recommended by teachers: “eye-opening”
The Illusionists is a powerful documentary about the globalisation of beauty and the dark side of advertising. Our mission: to spark a #bodypositiverevolution. View the trailer
