Gaze of the Beholder - Movie Trailer (7/2014)
Beauty is defined as: a characteristic of a person, place or thing that provides a pleasurable or satisfactory experience, which is why when we talk about beauty, it encompasses so many different things -- from a song, a smell, a sunset or a smile.
Through the filmmaker's lens, we go in search of the commercial and personal perspectives on what it means to be beautiful, the distinctions between "sexy" and "beautiful" and how the internal gaze of the beholder may heighten and/or distort the external image. At our core, we know that it's not what's on the outside, but what's on the inside that matters and yet we remain our own antagonists.
This documentary explores our shared dance with beauty, body image and sexuality through reflected through intimate and often humorous conversations with people from various walks of life to identify similarities, shared beliefs and touch on taboo-licious topics.
This film mirrors more of the conversations that we want to have around our shared dance with personal acceptance, accountability and self-love with the understanding that getting to the "Beautiful yoU" starts with the "Be U."
