Pin Up! The Movie


Contemporary pin up girls, and the women who inspire them. Drawing from the art of Gil Elvgren and Alberto Varga, and the style sense of Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page, the pin up is, in the words of art historian Maria Elena Buszek, “a uniquely American phenomena.” The modern pinup is enticing, captivating, independent, and omnipresent–a thoroughly 21st century woman. This documentary spends more than two years in the pin up scene, introducing us to women who are bold, confident and, yes, very modern. You can look at the pin up. But she’s the one calling the shots.
