The night will also feature "The Beautiful", produced by CCTV instructor Peter Pizzi. "The Beautiful" tells the story of one young women's disillusionment with her family and on a greater level the disappoint she feels with her country. It is both sassy and bratty in its poignant portrayal. The film's characters consist of a 3-member family: Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty and their daughter – Beauty. The story is told through the eyes of Beauty. Factiously Beauty rips into her parents, comically they either respond or not. The film was inspired by a poem of the same name by Michelle Tea.
