Our Time - Self Image & Non-Conformity
Societal ideals of beauty have promoted images of ultra-thin models resulting in an epidemic of eating disorders. Makayla de la Cruz tackles her life-long battle with weight and body image, while Casey Gurtler eschews the self-policing that young people employ when conforming to societal norms. Both films reveal family and parenting strategies that resist peer conformity.
