Annenberg Space for Photography Film BEAUTY CULTURE To Screen at DocuWeeks Showcase in Los Angeles

The Annenberg Space for Photography’s film BEAUTY CULTURE has been selected by the International Documentary Association (IDA) as an entry in the 16th Annual IDA DocuWeek Theatrical Documentary Showcase which runs in Los Angeles August 10-30, 2012.

The 30-minute documentary is directed by filmmaker and photographer Lauren Greenfield. BEAUTY CULTURE explores feminine beauty in contemporary culture through photography and the implication for female body image. Like the 2011 exhibit, It examines our obsession with beauty – its biological origins and how photographs shape our definitions of it. Elite fashion photographers, models and artists join pageant stars, bodybuilders, teenagers, and intellectuals in a provocative dialogue that addresses the persistent “beauty contest” that is daily life

Screenings of the film will take place in Los Angeles from August 10th through the 16th at the Laemmle NoHo 7 in North Hollywood. A Q&A session with Greenfield will follow those screenings on August 10 & 11.

The documentary will be screened on these seven dates as part of the festival’s LA Shorts Program.

FRI 8/10        4:25 PM followed by Q&A with the film’s director
