Consciously Beautiful, Documentary
Organized by: Consciously Beautiful
Who Are You? Consciously Beautiful is a raw and riveting reflection that causes women and girls of all ages to reflect upon their self worth. Written and directed by Ardre Orie, the film examines how the self-esteem of girls decline as they become women and the increase of self-destructive behaviors that ensue as a result. The film challenges the portrayal of women and girls in mainstream media that often leaves limited access to role models and positive examples from which to envision a future of success. Limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, make it difficult for women to see themselves as anything other than hyper sexual products and suffocates progressive thoughts and depictions of powerful beings.
