On Beauty Trailer (2013)
Trailer for the short documentary On Beauty.
From Emmy-nominated filmmaker Joanna Rudnick and Chicago’s Kartemquin Films comes a story about challenging norms and redefining beauty. On Beauty follows fashion photographer Rick Guidotti, who left the fashion world when he grew frustrated with having to work within the restrictive parameters of the industry’s standard of beauty. After a chance encounter with a young woman who had the genetic condition albinism, Rick re-focused his lens on those too often relegated to the shadows to change the way we see and experience beauty.
The film represents Sarah, Jayne and the millions of people around the world who have dealt with the constant stares and judgments from others. It illuminates Rick’s photos, which challenge both the mainstream media’s narrow scope of beauty and the dehumanizing black-bar convention of medical textbooks. On Beauty is call to action that will change public perceptions and educate people about genetics and bullying. Join the movement to see the beauty in difference.
