Painted Babies At 17 (Beauty Pageant Contestants Then And Now)

Painted Babies At 17 (Beauty Pageant Contestants Then And Now)
Rating

In 1995, the award winning documentary Painted Babies sent shock waves around the world as it lifted the lid on child beauty pageants: a world of stolen childhoods fuelled by parental ambition. Twelve years on, acclaimed British documentary maker Jane Treays revisits her original subjects – Asia Mansure and Brooke Breedwell – who are now 17, and charts how their lives have changed. By cutting back to their lives as inarticulate and compliant five-year-olds, a fascinating portrait emerges of pageant life, ambition, class and culture.
