PINK ATTITUDE - PRINCESSES POP STARS & GIRL POWER
ARTE France Documentary about Society's perceptions and representations of Feminity
How to, thanks to romance novels, TV series, dress codes, the little princesses from yesterday became bad girls. On the cards: narcissism, guys, clothes and bird names ...
Cheerful, bubbly and colorful, the Girlie-Girl Culture is an unavoidable phenomenon of our western societies. This ambiguous and popular culture-both angelic and demoniac constantly oscillates between two extreme images of women: the little girl and the temptress, the ingénue and the predator.
How has the Girlie-Girl Culture managed to conquer the world, to shape and impose guidelines to a new feminine identity? Which cultural codes lurk behind the glitter and pink veneer of the Pink Attitude-codes that guide the majority of today's girls from cradle to adulthood? Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Barbie dolls and Bratz dolls; Hello Kitty; pop icons Katy Perry, Rihanna or Miley Cyrus and their sugar-candy sexy videos clips; TV shows and romantic comedies; women's magazines and nail salons blooming on every street corner...
Welcome to the land of Girly-Girl Culture.
With his transformation work, New York Image Maker Yuseff Smyth questions the limit between girl culture and modern femininity, when it can be a mask to take the power.
