Set your TiVo, make plans with a friend who has HBO, do whatever it takes . . . but don't forget about Youth Knows No Pain, a documentary airing this Monday at 9 p.m. on HBO. Filmmaker Mitch McCabe, the daughter of a plastic surgeon, sets out to explore our society's relationship to aging — or rather, trying to prevent any and all signs of growing older. The resulting film, which covers the rise of fillers, cosmetic surgery, and other youth-preserving attempts, looks fascinating. To check out the trailer (really, you should) and to find out how you can get your questions answered by the filmmaker, just read more.
I'll be speaking with McCabe tomorrow, so leave any questions for her in the comments — I'll be sure to ask as many as possible.
