VIDEO: Exploring ideas of beauty
These extracts from a film by students at Gimnasio Colombo Británico, Bogota, Colombia explore modern ideas of beauty in Colombian society.
The full film, produced as part of the students' exam submission for Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives course, explored a wide range of related topics, including historical perceptions of beauty, the use of plastic surgery to change how we look, and whether attractiveness affects employment prospects.
The clips here show interviews with students, staff, and local residents about what they find attractive, and detail the results of a survey carried out by the group on their fellow students’ views on beauty.
