Flim4 FrightFest – On Tender Hooks World Premier

August 24, 2013 @ 10:00 pm - August 25, 2013 @ 1:00 am

Film4 FrightFest Screening of Kate Shenton’s ‘On Tender Hooks’ feat. Tam Smith of State of Bliss

The first self-funded feature film from accomplished short filmmaker Kate Shenton (GIMP, ZUMBO) this eye-opening documentary film delves into the world of human suspension and the eclectic people involved. Kate spent a year following different people and a group of suspenders. Every Sunday they pierce themselves with hooks and hang in mid-air from rigs in a display that challenges the perceptions and squeamishness of even the most hardened. A fly-on-the-wall documentary showing how the ordinary human body can achieve extraordinary things, beginning with communities in London (Constant Elevation and State of Bliss), and then following events in Rico, Croatia and Oslo, Norway, the film depicts a wide variety of experience and opinions, and probes thoughtfully into a deeply misunderstood practice.

WORLD PREMIERE. Cast: Kate Shenton, Tam Smith, Ana Laco, Håvve Fjell, Charlyne Chiappone. UK 2013, 70 mins.

Tickets are available from the Film4 FrightFest Website.
