Portrait photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders's lush new film is an intimate view of women whose images have defined our sense of beauty over the past five decades. An uncensored look at many of the biggest names in modeling, ABOUT FACE reveals the stories behind the magazine covers displaying these multicultural pioneers. Each woman is candidly interviewed in the studio and shares her experiences, ideas on longevity, and philosophy of life in the fashion industry. Archival footage and interviews with designer Calvin Klein and agency head Eileen Ford round out this chronicle. ABOUT FACE is a step back in time to a glamorous, yet complicated era when drugs were rampant and women were routinely harassed and mistreated. The divergent attitudes among the women about everything from the business of modeling, to aging and plastic surgery, are fascinating and priceless. ABOUT FACE celebrates the raw intelligence and staying power of these timeless icons.
Follow a team of Australian doctors and nurses on board a unique ship in West Africa. This floating hospital will face the most severe medical issues, long since eradicated in most parts of the world. Stories from the world’s largest floating hospital. Out on the ocean, the surgery ship carries life-saving medical services for people who have none: children who suffer with terrible leg deformities, women outcast from their communities by birthing fistulas, vast tumors of all shapes and sizes which afflict the unlucky. With no medical help, sufferers must survive the best they can - unless the ship is in port. The ship docks in a different country every year and people come from all corners of the globe. It is the last hope for so many – and if they miss the boat, there is no other chance.
