Film Description:
"Preteens and adolescents discuss the adverse effects of the sexual stereotypes they are constantly bombarded with. They talk about how hard it is to develop their own personality and make friends when they don't conform to media and advertising images. Produced in collaboration with the Montreal Women's Y as a follow-up to Sexy Inc.: Our Children under Influence, also directed by award-winning filmmaker Sophie Bissonnette, this film for 11- to 13-year-olds is a great way to kick off a lively discussion."

Quote by the Director [in French]

"J'ai fait ce film [Être ou paraître? Les jeunes face aux stéréotypes sexuels] parce que les préados sont un groupe particulièrement vulnérable et facilement influençable. Ils sont en voie de construire leur identité. Et les compagnies en profitent."
-- Sophie Bissonnette (source)
