Saturday Vids: Ideal Women

Elena Rossini is a film director, cinematographer and editor from Italy. She’s also a really awesome woman who is working on multiple feminist projects, including a documentary about the manipulation of women’s bodies in our culture (The Illusionists) and an awesome blog (No Country for Young Women) that works to connect women across generations (that I happen to have been featured on). One of my favorite works of Elena’s, however, is her short film “Ideal Women” which was commissioned by ARTE/the Louvre Museum’s project “4 Semaines” and which I was lucky enough to see at the Endangered Species Summit. Enjoy!

    I loved how it showed realistic bodies with more superficial ones. There is really a change in pressure and in expectations for women and the movie contrasts them wonderfully.

    That’s so intense. I’ve never seen magazine covers compared to paintings. It’s like photoshop took over and everyone got delusional about female beauty.
