Documentary Filmmaker, Elena Rossini

elenarossini-bylawrenceoluyede1-1

Elena Rossini traveled from Paris, France to talk about an issue about which she is so passionate….body image and how marketing shows perfection when that is impossible to obtain. Rossini, a documentary filmmaker, spent about 7 years traveling the world to produce “The Illusionists.” The film is about the marketing of unattainable beauty ideas from around the world. She started the project on a shoestring budget, but because of the topic, people were drawn to her. She is currently screening her film globally. I was drawn to her too because of the message. When she recorded on my show, NYBERG, she had spoken at Harvard.

    I am so glad this young woman is addressing this issue from a documentary standpoint. We can’t overemphasize the falsity of airbrushed perfection. I know so many otherwise smart, confident and beautiful young women who can fall into the body image trap, even though they are well aware that it’s not real or attainable.
