Synopsis: We are bombarded today through magazines, television shows, commercials, and movies of what women should look like, how they should act, and things they should do to be considered attractive. This is my expression of how I feel about this intrusion in a dark humored, experimental documentary.

Director's Statement

Every person on this Earth should feel beautiful no matter how they look. Society has no right to tell us what beauty is. It’s about controlling your looks, feelings, and actions by constantly beating the thoughts into your beautiful brain that you aren’t worthy through all the media we consume daily. Embrace every imperfection! Maybe if we were less focused on how we should be, everyone could look in the mirror without cringing. Beauty is a film created as an experimental documentary to express my feelings about what beauty truly is.

Director's Bio

My name is Olivia Andrus and I am currently a graduate student at Montana State University in the Science and Natural History Filmmaking Program. I’ve been making fiction films since I was in high school and fell in love with storytelling. I have a bachelor’s degree in film and wildlife biology from Purdue University with aspirations to become the best science communicator I can be through the medium of film. I have directed award winning projects such as My World, Grounded, Beauty, and Diversified: The Florida Panther Story.
