The Good, the True and the Beautiful

Anwar Saab

Ethnografilm 2014

The Good, the True and the Beautiful is a documentary on the cultural aspects of medical images and their production. The film invites us to reflect on how imaging technologies have become crucial tools within the bio sciences as well as in medical practice. Through questioning the medical images status' as objective witnesses of nature, the film also challenges us to consider the interdependence of science and culture in the production of new images and imaginations of the body.
