Beauty Mark film at the Bloom Collective 3/12

March 7, 2010

The Bloom Collective is hosting a screening of the new documentary Beauty Mark: Body Image and the Race for Perfection.

In this courageous, deeply personal new film, Diane Israel examines American culture’s toxic emphasis on thinness, beauty, and physical perfection. Israel, a Boulder-based psychotherapist and former champion tri-athlete, talks candidly about her own struggle with eating disorders and obsessive exercising, fearlessly confronting her own painful past as she tries to come to terms with American culture’s unhealthy fixation on self-destructive ideals of beauty and competitiveness.

There will be a discussion following the film.
