This Weekend: Feminist Movie Night!
American documentary filmmaker Darryl Roberts has made a new film about western society's obsession with physical beauty. The film, America the Beautiful, explores where our beauty obsession comes from and the consequences of it.
The film is getting rave reviews, Roger Ebert even said it's "a film that might rescue the lives of some girls ages 12 and up."
The film is playing this weekend at Vertigo Theatre: Saturday April 4 and Sunday April 5 at 5:00pm and 8:00pm on both days.
The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A session after the film. Tickets are $17.50 or $12.50 for students and seniors.
