    • Synopsis
    • 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.
