Beauty Is - the much-anticipated documentary is to be screened at SOAS, followed by a debate
Beauty Is... is an edutainment documentary film that investigates the meaning of beauty by simply posing 'what is is beauty'?
Community educator and film maker Toyin Agbetu, allows for the topic of beauty to be examined through a series of discussions, from which the several answers given, attempt to define the term by looking at it from a philosophical perspective; and as it pertains to our outer appearance, character and body image. It also explores the risks posed by chemical straighteners and skin bleaching and shares insights on conditions like Vitiligo and Alopecia whilst discussing the impact of biased media on children and personal relationships.
