Les Fleurs

The blurb: The female form is transformed from hairless ideal to glorious natural state, set to the rousing score of Minnie Riperton’s title track.

This is a film from the Nowness “Define Beauty” series. “One of the things I appreciate most about female beauty is what’s commonly appreciated the least, director Saam Farahmand told Nowness. “I wanted to find something about women that was almost unanimously disliked… It was important to immerse the viewer in the female form, an overwhelming landscape where the smallest shifts are amplified” You can read more of the director’s comments here.
