Please note: the original program aired on KQED Ch. 9. This version is 7 minutes shorter, as three music videos featured in the original show have been cut because of licensing issues. These were: Devo's 'Girl U Want', The Pretenders 'Brass in Pocket' and The Skids 'Charade'.
A fast paced, video magazine show which reflects on images, stereotypes and popular attitudes towards "beauty" in American society. Produced in 1980 by San Francisco based independent studio Videowest. See their website for more details:
Includes interviews with photographers and models, the Berkeley Women's Group, a cosmetic surgeon and passers-by in downtown San Francisco. Also features scenes from the Miss San Francisco Pageant and highly irreverent, satirical advertising sketches.
