  • Wednesday, March 14 - “Cover Girl Culture,” a documentary by ex-fashion model Nicole Clark, exposes how media advertising and the cult of celebrity negatively impacts teen and young women.
  • Monday, March 19 - “Arresting Ana,” a film by journalist and documentary filmmaker Lucie Schwartz, explores the secret world of the pro-anorexia cyber-movement that poses questions about who controls women’s bodies.
  • Thursday, March 22 - “SEXY INC: our children under influence,” a documentary by Sophie Bissonette, analyzes the hyper-sexualization of our culture and its effects on young people.
  • Tuesday, March 27 - “Make Me Young,” an age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon takes a journey through America’s $60 billion anti aging world. All films are free and open to the public and will be followed by a panel discussion with invited faculty.
