The IIlusionists Documentary
Created by Elena Rossini (a film director, screenwriter, producer & much more), The Illusionists documentary is gearing up to be one of my anticipated movie releases and I’m hoping that it’ll be screened somewhere around town.
This documentary is centred around our insecurities and how multi-billion dollar companies use this to fuel the cycle so that products can sell. Admittedly, it is a clever way to advertise but what happens when this feeds into our culture and way of thinking? When self-esteems of both men and women are lowered and children targeted indirectly and subconsciously by their surroundings? When we strive for ideals that we are made to value?
I’ll be behind this project because I think that it’s unfair for todays children and my future children to grow up in a world where they are told that they’re not good enough and it won’t be fair if our generation doesn’t at least try to change this.
The film is now in the post production phase so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out more information here.
“ The Illusionists explores these themes through the testimonies of sociologists, politicians, magazine editors, scientists, artists and activists in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.”
I have posts to come about film director Jennifer Siebel Newsom who has released Miss Representation and will soon release Mask You Live In which are about the representation of women and men in the media (so hint hint, check back in a week or 2).
