The Illusionists: 4 October 2018 at The Cube Cinema

Sex sells. What sells even more? Insecurity.

Multi-billion dollar industries saturate our lives with images of unattainable beauty, exporting body hatred from New York to Beirut to Tokyo. Their target? Women, and increasingly men and children. The Illusionists turns the mirror on media, exposing the absurd, sometimes humorous, and shocking images that seek to enslave us.

We’re excited to host the first public screening in Bristol of critically acclaimed documentary The Illusionists about the globalisation of beauty ideals, filmed in 8 countries across 4 continents.

This evening is presented by Adblock Bristol: the campaign for a happier, healthier city free from the pressures of corporate outdoor advertising.

We’re pleased to be working in partnership with the Bristol Street Harassment Project.

There will be a short discussion before the film starts, to introduce some of the issues raised and the people and groups in Bristol who are challenging the myth of ideal beauty and the messages relentlessly pushed by advertisers, to keep us forever dissatisfied and constantly consuming their products.

Tickets £4 (£3 concessions): BOOK TICKETS
