“#Face Matters” is directed by Donna Chu, Centre fellow and Associate Professor of the School of Journalism and Communication. The documentary discusses the definitions of beauty in society and how it molds social identity and people's choices. Prof. Chu’s team collected views towards beauty from more than 200 students in six secondary schools in summer 2018. The team invited actor Sofiee Ng to present interviews with psychologists, anthropologists, movie stars, and beauty experts, to explore the meanings of beauty in relation to body image, self-affirmation, and in aspects of media and art.
