CHOP OFF

Directed by M.M. Serra
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 6 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE CHOP OFF
Chop Off exposes the dark, fearful recesses of the human psyche by filming the body modification of performance artist R.K. Literally risking "life and limb," R.K.'s body is his medium, and amputation is his art. The very act of filming him often stimulates a cascading range of emotions, from disgust to fear to dread.
