Experimental film exploring the role of aesthetics and beauty in art mashing up footage of Britney Spears with feminist performance artist Marina Abramovic.
A quote I found recently which really sums up what I was trying to get at in this film: "I suspect that the day Britney Spears shaved her own hair off represented a kind of Sartrean or Socratic argument (rather than, say, a nervous breakdown). She was, in effect, by the use of appearance, shrewdly de-mythifying beauty. The hair lies on the floor, “inexplicably faded” (Sartre), and the conventional notion of femininity likewise." (Andy Martin, The Phenomenology of Ugly, tiny.cc/cdhxp)
