St. Francis in the Foothills church is hosting a screening of Cover Girl Culture March 3, 2011.
Here is their review of the film:
03/13/11 “Cover Girl Culture: Awakening the Media Generation” NR 82 min Nicole Clark dir. Former Elite International model, Nicole Clark juxtaposes what the fashion editors of teen magazines say and what their publications actually do, exposing their hypocrisy. They claim to feature “real Girls” in their fashion spreads, but the photos of emaciated models tell a different story. Both advertisers and the editorial content convince teenage readers that the most important goal is physical perfection while priming them to buy and consume at the cost of their health and happiness. The documentary reveals the insidious reality of US consumer culture and tells parents how to combat the beauty industry’s grasp on their daughters. – St. Francis in the Foothills
