Director: Miguel Gaudêncio
What is the meaning of beauty and what holds us back from seeing ourselves as beautiful? These are the central questions that drive Gaudêncio's film. The story follows four individuals who are about to undergo plastic surgeries in an attempt to make themselves aesthetically complete. While the four are all undergoing different procedures for varying degrees of vanity, they all share a sense of self-consciousness that has pushed them to a point where they don't see any other option, they MUST change the way they look.
The film stars Agata Kulesza (Ida 2013) which won the Oscar for best foreign picture in 2014. Desire for Beauty is available on Hulu, Amazon Prime, Vimeo VOD and it's currently a staff pick on IndieReign.
