Date/Time and Place of Event
Originally produced by Women Make Movies in 2002.
Tracking the country’s oldest beauty contest—from its inception in 1921 as a local seaside pageant to its heyday as one of the country’s most popular events—MISS AMERICA paints a vivid picture of an institution that has come to reveal much about a changing nation. The pageant is about commercialism and sexual politics, about big business and small towns. But beyond the symbolism lies a human story—at once moving, inspiring, infuriating, funny, and poignant. Official Selection at the **Sundance Film Festival** and at the **SXSW Film Festival.** "*Superb…effortlessly mines perspective, poignancy and cultural significance for an exercise that has embodied the essence of kitsch and tacky…*" - ***The Hollywood Reporter***
