Are you staring?

Director: Holly Xue

Who sets up the standards for women’s beauty? How does it affect women’s attitudes towards their own bodies? The film gazes at the male gaze, with three young women in Beijing, China, who are taking part as models in the “intimate portrait” scene sharing their experiences in this binary relation.

This film is part of a combined programme with: The beholder of the eye. A very interesting pair of films allowing the viewer to watch and reflect about the male and female body.
