I started out as an actress in my teens working with Penelope Spheeris in her punk rock cult classic, SUBURBIA. From watching Penelope make indie films I was inspired by her along with other female filmmakers from the 80’s and 90’s when there was actually real independent filmmaking. I am hopeful that todays female stories and vision can be celebrated and as it was not easy to squeeze out my first feature film, I see it as a victory for all of us!Christina Beck, Director of Perfection
Los Angeles based independent filmmaker, Christina Beck, will be coming to London to premiere her debut feature film, PERFECTION at Rio Cinema Saturday February 9th 2:30pm with a Q&A to follow.
PERFECTION is set in Los Angeles and is an eye-opening portrayal of
the city rarely seen in mainstream Hollywood movies. The film tells
the story of Kristabelle, a 30 something who still lives with her

smoking young lover and a newly sober British stand up comic, they all
find that love can be more than skin deep.
