Doc-Week at Cinematique: "Bettie Page Reveals All"
This film from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori is an intimate look at one of the world’s most famous sex symbols, told in her own words. In this alluring documentary, Page emerges from the veil of myth via interviews taped a decade before her death in 2008. With razor sharp wit, Page tells her life story -- from humble beginnings in an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to scandalous 50s pin-up model, to shocking retirement in 1957 at the peak of her career.
Bettie Page Reveals All shows how Bettie’s unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses helped set the stage for the sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion.
