The social media beauty cult

  • Published 1 year ago

Most of us scroll through Facebook and Instagram on a daily basis. And by doing that, we are guilty for creating a cult we all suffer from.

Yes, we create the cult we hate. Nowadays, social media is influencing our lives more than ever. And for women, that means the way they feel about their bodies and the way they dress.

Young women are even more in danger. They have yet to build up their character, and they are bombed with photos of beautiful and attractive women online. It is all just a click away.

And nobody talks about the elephant in the room. Most of these images have been digitally enhanced. The documentary takes a long look at young women and how their life is dictated by the search for bodily perfection.

Consequences are fatal in some cases. They display as slimming and fitness crazes, but also eating disorders.
