Thursdays in Black: Filmmaker and Former Model Sara Ziff to Screen 'Picture Me' on Oct. 2

As part of LIM College's Thursdays in Black* campaign, there will be a screening of the documentary film Picture Me and an appearance by filmmaker Sara Ziff on Thursday, Oct. 2.

"A raw and personal video diary, Picture Me charts model Sara Ziff 's rise from fresh face to one that adorns billboards and magazines around the world. Ziff and filmmaker Ole Schell co-direct the documentary, lifting the veil on the glamorous world of high fashion modeling, from photo shoots with celebrated photographers to runway shows in New York, Milan, and Paris. The film considers the ever-increasing demand for adolescent models, the pressure to stay thin, sexual harassment and drug use. This intimate account features in-depth interviews with noted photographers and designers, and showcases personal footage shot by the models themselves, giving voice to those who are often seen, but rarely heard."

The screening and Q&A will be held at the Townhouse, Fourth Floor, from 6-8 p.m. For more info. email studentlife@limcollege.edu
