SYNOPSIS The Beast Behind Beauty explores our/your/my story, about how we live inside out and outside in, our relationship to Beauty vs feeling beautiful: at the core it is about our relationship to ourselves, our conscious and invisible selves*, to others, our families, our expectations, our bodies, our minds, our society, our obsession with appearances, with being an objectified commodity and then objectifying ourselves all in the name of being something we already are (beautiful) but don’t know it.

In the Beast Behind Beauty you will experience through the eyes of a former Beauty, model and fitness queen champion, who is taking back her life from Eating Disorder (ED), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (O.C.D.), Anorexia, anxiety, Mental Illness and beyond and transforming herself from a caterpillar to an even more beautiful butterfly., (* the invisible self, the conscious self is the tip of the iceberg, the invisible self is everything under water and is the title of a work in progress documentary)

If the Beast Behind Beauty speaks to you and you think this is important issue please help us make this a reality. see below

INVITATION: we invite you to participate in the feast of potential opportunities, to make a difference to both men and women, boys and girls like you and me who are held hostage by the beast, by beauty. We are in a battle to create a nest for the Beast Behind Beauty project to grow. We need in-kind and financial support and beyond in order to slay the beast. Our strategy is to build a community crowd sourced multi-dimensional support network if we are going to be effective in changing how we think about beauty vs feeling beautiful – we envision a multi pronged approach: experiential interactive film/audio/photos/curriculum and mentoring online & offline – Distribution via theatrical/broadcast/small and large screening with discussion followup after live and online events and a strong Social Web presence, always with an eye towards educational component for all ages…. – we can’t do it alone so please help and please contact us beauty (at) if this interests you
