The Hungry Games part of The Body Beautiful

The expectations of the female body are examined in depth in this selection of shorts, ranging from the comedic to the experimental.

Exploring women’s relationship to their bodies and societal expectations placed on them, these films range from gross-out comedies to moving visual feasts, but they all take on the challenges and contradictions placed upon women’s bodies and turn them on their head.
