Upload Cinema: Engineering The Body

Upload Cinema: Engineering The Body

Photo by Anne Helmond

Last nights edition of Upload Cinema was all about the use of technology to shape ourselves to our ideal image. The audience looked at fitness, body building, plastic surgery, robotics and bionics. The videos show the sane, the insane, the good, the bad and the ugly.

And the beautiful!

134 movies were entered and 35 films were selected. Guest curator Martin C. de Waal.

Here are all the movies that were shown:
