Short Films

34x25x36

Filmmaker Jesse Epstein takes us inside the Patina V Mannequin Factory in City of Industry, Calif., where the artistry, craft and marketing that go into creating "the ideal woman of the moment" — in plastic — are accompanied by a remarkable amount of reflection on just what that ideal means (one thing it means is a 34" x 25" x 36" figure). Patina V is a place where the owner will tell women (and then run for cover), "There are no perfect bodies out there. We make the perfect body."
