    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.
