BEAUTY OF THE BEAST

BEAUTY OF THE BEAST

Planned release: 2019

The female bodybuilders’ world, shown from a perspective rarely seen by the general public: beyond the glitter and fake tan. The film endeavours to map out the diverse reality of the international bodybuilding subculture while at the same time it focuses on individual characters. An array of visual compositions helps to contextualise this astounding phenomenon in terms of its unique psychology and complex sociology. The documentary attempts to provide the viewer with an empirical and yet sensual experience. Impulsive visuals and a mesmerising soundscape contribute to convey a sense of how bodybuilders see themselves within the movement and the world at large.
