Over the Hill

Sunny Bergman goes to American to find out why it is that at 34 she already feels over the Hill.

Over the Hill is a powerful look at the forces of the marketplace which worm their way into our minds and bodies making 35-year-old women over the hill. Sunny Bergman draws from her personal experience to discover why, at 34, she is worried - and angry - that her days as an attractive woman are numbered. What she discovers is the persuasive power of the cosmetics industry and fashion magazines. Rather than making women feel better about themselves, they actually make them feel worse. Women are no longer able to see themselves in a proper perspective but fall victim to a seductive and corrupting industry as they struggle in vain to achieve a beauty ideal that doesn't exist. 59 minutes. www.viewpointdocs.com
