The Cult of the Beautiful Body

The Cult of the Beautiful Body

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
Extreme body consciousness has taken youthful narcissism to new heights, making "boy meets girl" a ruthless physical selection process. This program examines the cult of the body in Western society and how it has reduced today's courtship ritual to a one-dimensional experience based primarily on physical attraction. Beginning with the pressure that men currently feel to conform to an abstract physical ideal, the role of the media is scrutinized, along with the culture that from Munich to Los Angeles excludes all who do not espouse the ideals of bodily perfection at the expense of all else. A Deutsche Welle Production.
