    Renowned Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur, has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined, and even demeaned what it means to be famous today.Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, $ellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy.

    Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kid Rock among others, help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity.

    Fame is now a national pastime, it is what millions of us follow, believe in and seemingly what we care about most - as well as a billion dollar-a-year industry. But what does our intense fascination with celebrity say about us? And how much is too high a price to pay for our own curiosity run rampant? $ellebrity captures the free-for-all of pop culture today and the ever-changing face of fame.
