In GALAXY 360: A Woman’s Playground, women rule the world, men dream of getting married, and you’re invited to attend Victor’s Angels Mr. World Beauty Pageant, the most watched reality TV show of the future! This is a comic Sci-Fi satire with a great message! Set in the year 2195, all gender stereotypes are reversed, and men are treated as objects and playthings, under the wealth and power of women. The pageant features The Great Media Personality Illumina, who whips the men into shape through drama, tears and insecurities, as they dream of winning the Golden Phallickorn Crown – a prize that will raise the men’s social and economic status.
Additional guests included Cindy Guyer, Josie Goldberg, Dustin Quick and Medi eM, Grammy-winning couple Pablo and Paulina Aguirre, actress Terri Ivens, TV presenter Jezlan Moyet, Steve Owens, Golsa Sarabi, and many others.
The screening was followed by a Q&A with Fishbeyn and Colin Costello, West Coast editor of Reel360, and a cocktail reception.
During the event, Fishbeyn commented, “My movement is Movement 360 and it’s where men and women connect with one another empathetically. It’s where men experience what it means to be a woman today, and they feel us, because we can’t attain equality without the men. This is not just a feminist movement. This is Movement 360 where we work together with men to make a difference for women.”
