WHO: The 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. 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.

The film was originally shown in 2011 in the Foundation's photography gallery--the Annenberg Space for Photography. The film accompanied an exhibit of the same title that served as a sweeping, unprecedented photographic exploration of how feminine beauty is defined and challenged in modern society.

WHERE: Laemmle NoHo 7, 5240 Lankershim Blvd in North Hollywood in LA, CA.

HOW: General public admission to screenings are available at the Laemmle for $11.00, $8.00 for IDA members and $8.00 for seniors and children. Press interviews with the director and credentials can be obtained through contacts below.
