The third installment in BODY TYPED, a trilogy (including THE GUARANTEE and the Sundance award-winning WET DREAMS AND FALSE IMAGES) examining notions of physical perfection. In 34x25x36, we visit the Patina V Mannequin Factory where the artistry, craft and marketing that go into creating "the ideal woman of the moment"--in plastic--are accompanied by a remarkable amount of reflection on just what that ideal means. The designer hearkens back to the roots of his craft not only in French 19th-century wax figures but also in the religious icons of medieval times. Provocative and informative, the film premiered at the SXSW film festival, and director, Jesse Epstein, was recently named to Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
