America the Beautiful
In a society where "celebutantes" like Paris Hilton dominate newsstands and models who weigh less than 90 pounds die from malnutrition, female body image is one of the more dire problems facing today's society. America the Beautiful illuminates the issue by covering every base. Child models, plastic surgery, celebrity worship, airbrushed advertising, dangerous cosmetics - no rock is left unturned. Featuring appearances by Jessica Simpson, Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Martin Short, Eve Ensler and Paris Hilton.
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL was presented at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on April 1, 2008, earning nominations for multiple Best of the Midwest Awards, including Best Feature Film.
