Event

'Youth Knows No Pain', Harun Farocki's 'An Image', & 'Daisy: The Story Of A Facelift'
Documentaries in Bloom: New Films presented by Livia Bloom



Daisy: The Story of A Facelift
Dir. Michael Rubbo, 1982, 58 min. (Canada)
Middle-aged Daisy shares her decisions, doubts, and stomach-turning medical procedure in this rare featurette from the earliest days of cosmetic surgery.

An Image
Dir. Harun Farocki, 1982, 26 min. (Germany)
A Playboy Magazine centerfold photo-shoot in Munich was documented by celebrated international artist Harun Farocki in this very rarely-seen short film.

Youth Knows No Pain
Dir. Mitch McCabe, 2009, 88 min. (USA)
"Since my own dad was a plastic surgeon, as a child Iʼd find birthday cards from friends with breasts on them, before-and-after slides of patients, and the occasional implant lying around," says Mitch McCabe in her candid new documentary. "Youth Knows No Pain subjects America's anti-aging obsession to an intimate, often unflattering close-up, and with an appreciable lack of vanity, director Mitch McCabe also holds up her own face -- lines, imperfections and all -- for the camera's scrutiny. McCabe's unique perspective as a plastic surgeon's daughter informs this lively, candid and thoughtful piece, which avoids the fashionable alarmism of so many social-issue docs as it weighs the costs and benefits of wrinkle creams, breast implants and Botox injections and allows viewers to decide for themselves." -Variety
