SYNOPSIS

 

After their 15 minutes of fame are over, former Austria's Next Top Model participants meet in a casting. Joint conversations during breaks about their experiences on the reality TV show provide insights into their motivation and views on an industry that sells beauty as a standardized consumer good. The spirit of Venus, goddess of beauty and poems by female poets of the early 20th century break through the supercooled visual worlds and mechanical processes and point to the different perceptions of aesthetics in past ages and a possible future. The cinematic interpretation of an ordinary casting tape.
