Pacifica Culture Club! Discussion Topic: Perfection in the Media, May 27th at Florey's!
Florey's welcomes you to our culture discussion club!
***Wednesday, May 27th 7:30pm-9pm***
From Amanda, the host:
Join Culture Club! A monthly social discussion of social issues at a local independent bookstore in Pacifica. Get to know neighbors, express your opinions and learn more about topics that matter. Every month I encourage those attending to do some self-guided "research" whether that be watching relevant movies, attending events, reading books, articles or watching informative videos. It's all fair game, whatever you see fit, and then bring what you found/learned to the group to discuss.
May's Topic: Perfection in the Media. This topic nearly speaks for itself. We've all been inundated with images of perfect bodies, perfect things and perfect perfect perfect lives. How has this onslaught affected you? What responsibility lies with the media and what responsibility lies with us?
Here is this month's list of suggested materials but as always, please feel free to engage in your own study, bring materials to share about, or just your own thoughts and experiences. All are welcome, bring a guest!
Book: Addiction to Perfection by Marion Woodman
TedTALK: Kate Neligan
Movie: It's Kind of a Funny Story (it's about a teenage boy who is so overwhelmed with trying to be perfect in his life he checks himself into a mental hospital)
The movie is based on the book by Ned Vizzini:
Please offer more ideas if you have them! I havn't had a ton of time to do research.
