THE ILLUSIONISTS


'' is an award-winning documentary about the globalization of beauty and the dark side of advertising.''










PLUS SIZED WARS

'' Channel 4's optimistic documentary on changing beauty standards, was a group of confident, attractive women, ranging in dress size from a 16 to a 24. These fashion bloggers claimed to represent a significant group of British women who are being ignored by high street retailers, and their huge Instagram followings were the compelling proof. So why is the industry lagging so far behind what customers want? ''





'' The Sixty-Six Percent

is about women in the U.S. - the overwhelming majority of which are overweight (66%) according to the CDC, thus considered "plus-size" by the fashion industry, yet are treated as the minority in women's wear. 


Using fashion industry data and culture statistics, the film explores the annual event, Full-Figured Fashion Week, which seeks to counteract the normative behavior that has been perpetuated by New York Fashion Week in continuing to drape society's belief in beauty as being an unattainable fantasy. ''


Straight / Curve


" Ninety percent of women and young girls say they do not feel represented in the fashion industry or in media, and that the imagery they consume on a daily basis makes them feel “disgusting” and “less than”. 

The exciting new documentary Straight/Curve examines the industries and obstacles responsible for this body image crisis and showcases the dynamic leaders fighting for more diversity of size, race and age.

At a time when our brain processes images 60,000 times faster than words Straight/Curve sets out to change the imagery we are seeing and to bolster a movement that is redefining society’s unrealistic and dangerous standards of beauty to impact society at large. "
