Amazon Body

Directed by UNGER Anja

Storyline

Having developed cancer, Annick had her breast removed in 2000. She chose to remain “asymmetrical” but is still hurt by the way other people look at her body. In order to break the taboo and the silence about the effects of cancer, she and other women have been preparing an art exhibition around the idea of the “amazon body”. Observing the American fine art photographer Art Myers at work, this film looks beyond the disease to consider how women reappropriate their bodies and reinvent themselves. It challenges conventional ideas about women, femininity and female beauty.
