Indwelling: Living Securely In Our Bodies

Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 12:45 pm to 4:45 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 202, Theresa Lang Community & Student Center 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

The New School for Social Research is proud to partner with Indwelling to honor fimmaker Elena Rossini. The event will include a screening of her award-winning documentary The Illusionists and a post-screening Q&A with Rossini.

This powerful documentary exposes the multi-billion dollar industries that saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body insecurity from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Through powerful images and interviews The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd and shocking images that seek to enslave us.

Rossini is also the founder and editor-in-chief of No Country for Young Women, a website whose aim is to provide positive role models for young girls. The site features over 100 interviews of women representing five continents, seven decades, and over two dozen professions – from NASA engineers, to illustrators, architects, filmmakers and entrepreneurs.
