Hey Good Lookin'

Short works about women and beauty. Jason Moore's American Seoul (2004) features a Korean-American punk girl who explains how Asian women adapt to the U.S. In Li-Anne Huang's elegant Singapore Girl, a woman training to be a flight attendant discovers what she'll have to sacrifice for her career—her self-respect. Elizabeth E. Lee's Good for Her, about the cosmetic surgery boom in South Korea, is interesting but repetitive. By contrast, Karen Lin's seven-minute Perfection economically captures the pressure exerted on women to look good. Also on the program: Debbie Lum's Chinese Beauty. 95 min.
