There's nothing like putting on a bathing suit to make folks obsess about wrinkles and sagging skin. But is it really worth going under the knife to fix? Find some answers at this evening of three rarely screened documentaries on the beauty industry: Daisy: The Story of a Facelift (1982), which shows a middle-aged woman's actual cringe-inducing medical procedure in the early days of cosmetic surgery; An Image (1982), a 26-minute behind-the-scenes look at a Playboy centerfold photo shoot in Munich; and Youth Knows No Pain (2009), director Mitch McCabe's exploration of the $60-billion-a-year anti-aging industry in America and her own experiences growing up with a plastic-surgeon father.
