TEETH

A Film by Alice Arnold

=20

The vital importance of an attractive smile, accented by gleaming white =
teeth, is repeatedly emphasized in all forms of contemporary consumer =
culture. This film is an amusing but informative look at the =
psychological, social and economic issues involved in our concerns about =
dental hygiene, and how the marketplace perpetuates and exploits these =
anxieties.

Featuring interviews with people having admittedly less-than-perfect =
smiles-with yellow, crooked, missing teeth or gaps-plus commentary by =
dentists, a psychoanalyst and a health educator, TEETH examines =
historical and cultural attitudes to teeth, society's current notions of =
beauty, and the recent boom in teeth-whitening products and cosmetic =
dentistry.=20

While discussing how economic inequalities, including the lack of =
universal dental healthcare insurance, affect Americans' oral health, =
TEETH also examines hip-hop culture's fashion of sporting gold or =
diamond-plated "grills" in the mouth as just the latest example of the =
connections between consumer culture, commercial images, self-identity =
and personal expression.
