Sex sells. What sells even more? Insecurity. Multi-billion dollar industries saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body hatred from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children. The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.

The Illusionists is a critically acclaimed documentary about the globalization of beauty. Words of praise for our film:

"A revelatory primer on the global manipulation of perception and consumption, The Illusionists should be required viewing in every school – and possibly every home.”
– Joss Whedon, film & TV director, screenwriter and producer (The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
