dc.description.abstract With multiple technologies at our grasp, it is almost impossible to avoid the media. The everincreasing exposure of celebrities and the exmnination of their lives and bodies is infiltrating our daily lives. They must embody the ideal woman -tall, thin, gorgeous -and this is impacting how society views its members. There is increasing pressure on all young womnen to look this way, and for young men to want this. Recently, there is rising pressure on men to be as muscular as possible, and for women to want that. This documentary looks into how the media's insistence on selling the ideal to society has impacted our views, and looks into what the average person thinks of this ideal.
