Jennifer Dugan is beautiful, and she knows it. She feels her beauty entitles her to the good things in life and feels no sympathy for those less fortunate than her. That is until one day when she has an epiphany at an audition that changes her perspective on life. Written and directed by Brendan Muldowney (The Ten Steps, which aired in season four of Imagemakers). Principal cast: Ailish Symons and Britta Smith.
The Body Against
Bombarded with images in the media of perfection, girls are faced with unrealistic expectations of beauty. A young woman obsessed with her image takes a dark journey into the labyrinth of her own perception. Her body becomes a prison for the world to see as she lives the self-destructive dream of becoming what she is not. Written and directed by first time filmmaker Eduardo Chapero-Jackson. Principal cast: Macarena Gomez, Sarai Encinas Martin and Yaiza Guimare.
