America The Beautiful Film Screening and Discussion

Wheaton College's Center for Applied Christian Ethics will screen the film America the Beautiful by filmmaker Darryl Roberts at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 20. The screening, and discussion will take place in the Lecture Hall of the Science Center, located at 430 Howard Street. A discussion will follow.

The screening is one of several events for “eMBODY,” CACE’s spring conference. The conference takes place March 19-21.

America the Beautiful documents America's obsession with physical perfection and the deadly risks associated with our nation's quest.

“Here at CACE, we want to encourage the campus and community to reconsider our assumptions about what we must do with our bodies,” says CACE director Dr. Vincent Bacote. “This film challenges viewers to rethink our standard of beauty.”

The screening is free and open to the public. For more information, call the CACE office at 630.752.5886 or visit
