In the midst of war, they indulge in a shopping spree. And in between all of this, they always make time for a visit to the plastic surgeon. Image Matters is a thought provoking feature documentary directed by Rozy Sarkis inspired by the bizarre world she has witnessed around her while growing up in a wealthy village in war-torn Lebanon.
With the spotlight on Marinelle, a popular Lebanese soap-opera actress, Sarkis follows the story of a 40-year-old woman with an insatiable desire to transform her face in an attempt to regain the lost beauty of youth. Standing as a stark backdrop to the family drama, is a country that is going through its own upheaval with a wider picture of instability and uncertainty rearing its ugly head.
