Artist Andrea Cooper lampoons and scrutinizes modern-day images
of sexiness and femininity.
Fed a steady diet of Barbies and perfect B-cups since childhood,
St. Johns-based multi-media artist Andrea Cooper realised early on
that she, and the women around her, didnt look much like the women
she saw on Charlie's Angels or in Seventeen magazine.
Cooper fought back by creating a cast of giant, 70-foot femme fatales
in her own image.Award winning director Anita McGee looks
at this distinctive young artists work, whose credo is
Home is not Hollywood, and I am not a movie star.
Produced by St. Johns based Ruby Line Productions Inc.and with
Bravo! The Arts and Entertainment Network, with financial participation
of the Newfoundland and Labrador Film Development Corporation,
Telefilm Canada, the Canadian Television Fund, W and CBC Atlantic.
