Captive Beauty (2011) USA/Colombia

This documentary (72 minutes) introduces us to the stories and lives of the five women competing in a beauty pageant held within the walls of a women's prison in Medellin, Colombia.

This film presented as part of SFCC's 9th Annual International Film Series, showing five films from around the world over the next five weeks at The Garland Theatre. All films subtitled. Admission free for CCS students/employees, all others $4.50.

More information about this annual event (including film lists from previous years) can be found on SFCC's web pages here:

You can invite friends that are not in our movie meet-up group via Facebook at!/events/[masked]/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

Hope to see you there!

PS Whenever available, SFCC purchases a DVD copy of the films for our library, accessible to non-students through a community library card; HOWEVER, this film is NOT YET AVAILABLE for purchase, so this is your chance to see it!
