Perfect Image?

This fast-paced examination of Black women's struggles to assert their own positive self-images features two female characters who seem to represent archetypical extremes. The film is a visual feast, set up as a series of scenes and dialogues between poles of dark and light complexions. The women act out ways in which Black women challenge archaic values associated with hair texture, skin tone and the like. Grounded in a fresh, witty script, the film tackles serious issues with assistance from the Wee Papa Girl Rappers.
