Multicultural Barbie and the Invisible Other By Brittany Mok We consume cultural images that sell us normative ideals of what it means to be beautiful, successful, just, and powerful through mass media. Starting from childhood, we consume massive amounts of media images through a culture developed in television and advertising, which tells us the values and identities we should embrace and how we should react to people within our social groups and outside of them. Although the doll seems to encourage independence and creativity in all young girls, Barbie has historically been intended for the white, middle-class America Goldman and continues to do so even though multicultural Barbies now exist. The limitations of ethnic diversity and the problematic, stereotypic images of the ethnic dolls from the Dolls of the World and World Culture Barbie series serve to sideline minority groups as invisible Others separate from American society, and reinforce a normative image of white, feminine beauty.
The word is out, Maleficarum is out there in our DVD store, and for downloads As the 31st of October enters through the gates of time with witches galore, the world begins to download Maleficarum.
As I began to write this post the countdown for Maleficarum read 9 days We were working very, very hard getting all those many details ready.
Jane was so stressed out that she got sick while Mila appeared to be extremely quiet, doing her job as if no one else existed We thought she was mad at us or something.
JJ, in the meantime was on the verge of a breakdown but we could hardly notice because he kept his cool but we all knew that the clock was ticking inside of his head and as he went through the film he wished he had another 9 months to make it perfect.
That's the life of filmmakers.
The release of Maleficarum is a big deal for us, for sure. Is it bigger than other releases present, past, future? Not really, but it's special because it's different. Because it's a crossover movie. We were going to have a screening with the execs some time ago, but a family matter for JJ forced him to postpone that screening, he requested for a day Mir two later but the Cinemateque was in the middle of preparing two festivals so they decided for the Wednesday after that.
But when JJ, Mila and Beto went to the screening, they found out that due to the cinemateca's confusing times, the screening was canceled. Their guy in charge of the Media told them that the film will be shown there and that they want to do a lot of promotion.
Next day Beto, who is our associate producer and inquisitor, got word that this coming Monday 31st, the programmers at the Cinemateca will be scheduling the film anyway, without seeing it.
So, after we release the film online we will know when and if in Hungarian we use the same word for both MEG the film will have a theatrical run. If it does, we will have a premiere, yes, as a press event with guests, mostly cast, crew and friends By then most of our fans would have seen the movie However we're prepared to be rejected.
Seeing the film as it is, one gets the feeling that it's a hard film to watch and to accept.
What are we riding with this film? No, even if it feels that way. The adventure of making this movie was rewarding enough. We pulled it off and we're very proud of that fact.

We feel accomplished in ways that are impossible to measure. We feel that we can release this movie and watch it go wherever the wind takes it. That's exciting to us. What drove us nuts was having a deadline.
A date when the film must be ready for downloads. That was the stressing part, but it was also fun watching us suffer for our art. Now it's up to the technology, the Internet connections, the postal service It's up to the delivery system, our work is done.The correlation between media image and body image has been proven; in one study, among European American and African American girls ages 7 - 12, greater overall television exposure predicted both a thinner ideal adult body shape and a higher level of disordered eating one year later.

The portrayal of women as sexual figures in popular culture is also a threat to the well-being of our society. Frequently women are depicted or portrayed in some form of sexual representation.

Nov 17, · I think this is an amazing post. In terms of the media’s portrayal of the “ideal” female body image, I think you are spot on. In today’s society, everywhere women turn images of airbrushed models serve as an unattainable comparison/goal.
