For my film production class, I am involved in a documentary that focuses on gender role reinforcements of professional body builders, especially for females. With the addition of new categories, female body builders are being forced to increase their sex appeal through high heels, expensive suits, and make up during competition. Competitors who compete in the categories that emphasize more muscle tone are losing audiences. Their hard work is going unnoticed and this film highlights the dying breed.
Here’s a link to help the crew with funding for our project as we try to release the documentary to film festivals.
