How to make a self portrait

A film by zoe black

2018

 

a documentary that explores how media's representation of women affects how women form their identities.

it was inspired by my own journey through identity which was heavily informed by female characters in movies, tv, books, and plays. 

the film analyzes how women have been shown and received in American media, objectification, gaps in representation, and media's control on perception of people in the stories it tells.
