Student Shea Glover wanted to conduct a social experiment to see how people react to being call beautiful.
She asked fellow students and teachers at her performing arts school in Chicago if she could take a picture of them, and then explained she wanted to take photos of "beautiful things".
Glover then captured their reactions - which ranged from shocked, blushing, scepticism to outright denial - on camera. The film might be six months old, but it's still an incredibly moving piece to watch.
The film student has also made a video talking about the success of her project - which has now been viewed more than 4m times on YouTube.
