AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL -

"A FILM THAT MIGHT RESCUE THE LIVES OF SOME GIRLS AGEs 12 AND UP" - Award Winning Film by Darryl Roberts.

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Assignment Editor, City Editor, Education Editor, Health/Medical Editor EDMONTON/ALBERTA/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - July 31, 2009) - In celebration of the Grand Opening of our new offices - Me Without Measure Foundation is pleased to bring "America The Beautiful" back to Edmonton for two final screenings September 25, 2009 at 7 and 9:30 PM at the Westbury Theatre in the Transalta Arts Barns.

This movie should be seen by every mother, daughter, sister, friend, and by the men in their lives who love them. Director Darryl Roberts will be in attendance and he will do a Q & A following each screening.

"America The Beautiful" is a socially probing documentary which explores the question: "Does America have an unhealthy obsession with beauty?". Filmmaker Darryl Roberts journeys into the psyche of celebrities like Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson, athletes like Reggie Theus, industry professionals such as Jill Ishkanian from "US Weekly", Ted Casablanca from the "E! Channel" and the American citizenry to determine the roots of this superficial obsession.

By juxtaposing his personal obsessions with beauty with those of people like Martin Short, Michael Beach, Mena Suvari, Anthony Kiedis, Tisha Cambell and Aisha Tyler, Roberts illustrates that, to varying degrees, we all fall victim to this social phenomenon.
