The Champlain Valley Film Series will present the film To Be a Miss on Saturday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall.
This riveting, thought-provoking documentary goes behind the scenes to reveal the risks and rewards of the multi-billion dollar Venezuelan beauty machine. Venezuela has won more international beauty contests than any other country in the world, but there is a dark side to this success. Follow the hopes and dreams of three young women who transform their lives for the chance to become Miss Venezuela. This is a powerful expose about a country’s obsession with physical appearance and the objectification of women.
The film will be introduced by writer-director Aaron Woolf, who is the producer/director of the Peabody award-winning documentary King Corn. He lives in Elizabethtown where he is the co-owner of the Deer’s Head Inn.
Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for those under 18. This season’s film series is generously sponsored by the following businesses: Deer’s Head Inn; The Hub on the Hill; Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness; MacMan; Pok-O-MacCready Camps and Outdoor Education Center.
